Fernando, I share your lack of enthusiasm for the Columbia Crest Grand Estates Merlot, and not just the 2001. Maybe there's a lot of bottle variation and each year the Spec gets hold of good bottles and I get stuck with a bad one, but whatever the reason I wouldn't give more than a passing grade to any of the Grand Estates that have come my way. Your description of the 2001 coincides with my experience, and again not just for that year; there's a Coca Cola-like consistency from year to year.
