Col Solare Red Wine 2007


SKU 885860001710


The 2007 Col Solare exhibits aromas of black cherry, currant and ripe black berries, together with subtle notes of espresso and vanilla in the nose. On the palate, this full bodied wine is rich with flavors of dark chocolate, black fruits and a coconut spice which leads to a lingering, silky finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Col Solare is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged in 85% French and 15% American oak, 100% new. Col Solare has planted a beautifully situated estate vineyard but the fruit is not quite ready to be included. Medium purple-colored, if offers up an inviting perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, espresso, violets, black currant, and blackberry. Structured and dense on the palate, the wine has superb intensity, volume, and balance. It will reward another 5-7 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking from 2016 to 2032.

Wine SpectatorSupple and inviting, with a lively texture to the dark berry, currant, floral and spice flavors, coming together smoothly on the focused, mildly chewy finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2012 through 2017.
