Wine AdvocateFrom an extended vintage that saw solid hang time, the 2008 Col Solare (67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Syrah) shows a cool, elegant profile with black currant, mineral, smoke, wild herbs and graphite along with a medium to full-bodied, fresh and pure palate. Featuring clean, integrated acidity and a layered, pure profile, it has the structure to continue evolving gracefully for another decade or more. Drink now-2023.

Wine EnthusiastVineyard sources for Col Solare are evolving as the recently planted estate vineyard comes into bearing. This vintage incorporates fruit from several Red Mountain vineyards, though not Col Solare itself, along with lots from elsewhere around the state. Toasty and full-bodied, two-thirds Cabernet, the rest Merlot, Cab Franc and Syrah, this is a nicely blended wine

Wine SpectatorA layer of gritty tannins wraps around a generous, silky core of ripe currant and blackberry flavors in this firm red, with a hint of mint as the smoky finish persists. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Best from 2013 through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 9,000 cases made.
