    August 3, 2014 - Wow this was a treat, feel guilty giving it only 95 but taste was a bit too small and didn't have time to give it more air to see where this is fully going. Huge blast of dark fruits. Was surprised on just how smooth the tannins were and the finish goes forever. Would have guessed this was older. Can't see how this won't improve further.

    July 2, 2014 - Really good. Needs long decant to really be appreciated now. This improves with time.

    Fruit, acid, cocoa, graphite, pepper, repeat. Great complexity and distinct layers that keeps you guessing every sip.

    March 7, 2014 - Amanda returned from a business trip for the week and we just received a new Kingsbottle Wine Cooler, so I decided to celebrate. I opened the Solari before I left for the Airport and it was incredibly tight. We got back and sat down for dinner about 2 hours later... It was, without a doubt, one of the most complex and incredible wines I've had. With admirable balance between the acid and fruit. Firm and gentle balanced Tannin. Blackberry and currant off the nose with just a hint of coriander. Truly an impressive showing at Larkmead by Cam Baker.

    January 2, 2014 - very dark purple, concentrated dark berry and mineral aromas. this is probably the biggest cab i've ever had. the flavors confirmed what was on the nose, black fruit and charcoal minerality, backed up by a very long finish.
