    June 20, 2021 - Saw this in a wine list and ordered it. Smooth and structured. Nice spice. Aged perfectly. We enjoyed more then Our last few Opus and other 300 dollar plus wines

    May 22, 2021 - All the youthful characteristics noted back in 2014 have since faded, now in the latter stages of development. Displays a dulling ruby core, no signs of bricking. Even with an Ah-so cork puller, the cork completely disintegrated, and the wine was strained and poured into a small Riedel decanter. Hitting on all cylinders with aromatics and flavors showing ripe black cherry, blackberry liqueur, spicy currant, creamy vanilla, sweet licorice, milky coffee, drying tobacco, and mulchy soil. Well balanced, with tannin and acidity supporting a very satisfying finish. Perfect accompaniment to a grilled ribeye and grilled Brussels Sprouts. Drink now, unlikely to improve with further cellaring; however, this wine should drink very well for at least 2-3 more years.

    May 20, 2021 - Drinking about as well as aged WA wine drinks right now. To my taste it's too full bodied a wine to hold into very old age, but the current level of tertiary character works just right.

Washington Wine Report

    9/30/2010 (link) ***** points

    (Col Solare Red Wine Columbia Valley) A thrilling nose with aromas of spice, vanilla, black cherry and licorice. Big and power packed on the palate with tightly wound fruit, beautifully integrated tannins, and silky oak flavors. A wine with a long life ahead of it. Best I have had from this winery. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Klipsun, Cold Creek, Andrews Horse Heaven, Weinbau, Hedges, Four Feathers, Stone Tree, and Coyote Canyon vineyards. Aged in 85% French and 15% American new oak barrels. 14.5% alcohol.

    (Col Solare Col Solare Columbia Valley) A quiet nose with a fair amount of vanilla and some banana notes along with other aromas of a young wine that still needs to settle down. On the taste, opens and expands, hangs and lingers. The best of the vintages sampled. 75% Cabernet; 20% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Franc.
