James Suckling 96
“This has a distinctive nose with dark cherries and blackberries with stylishly cedary oak and a wealth of spiced currants. The palate has a very plush, powerful and well defined tannin structure, bathed in rich ripe-fruit flavor. 94% cabernet sauvignon and 6% cabernet franc”
This 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of black cherry, currants, cinnamon and rose petals with subtle notes of vanilla and milk chocolate. Tannins are rich and refined on the finish, a characteristic of Red Mountain fruit, with flavors of berries, dried fruit and cocoa that lingers forever.
Col SolareView all from Col Solare
From its inaugural 1995 vintage, Col Solare's mission has been to unite these two unique viticultural and winemaking cultures to produce a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon-based red wine from the very best Washington fruit.
With opening of a new winery and planting of the estate vineyard on Red Mountain in 2007, that vision has evolved to focus on showcasing the Cabernet Sauvignon of this unique AVA and, ultimately, the specific fruit of the Col Solare estate vineyard. While this vineyard is young, Col Solare's partners and winemaking team have high hopes that it will produce wines to be enjoyed for years to come.
