Col Solare : Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The delicacy and aromatic richness of a red wine from Red Mountain

The estate

Col Solare was borne from two internationally renowned producers meeting, both influential in their respective regions and countries: the Italian marquis, Piero Antinori (Tuscany), and the American estate Château Ste. Michelle (Washington), one of the oldest and most renowned winegrowing estates in the United States.

From this encounter in 1995, the first vintage of Col Solare was produced: a very high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon from the exceptional Red Mountain wine terroir.

This collaboration has highlighted, through its large vineyard and precise vinification, the subtle alliance between aesthetic, tradition and the resolutely modern vision of the two renowned winegrowers for over ten years now.

The wine

The Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 by Col Solare is produced from 4 vineyards: Col Solare (36%), Quintessence (34%), Shaw 32 (26%) and Kiona (4%).

The vintage

This vintage was marked by a hot spring and beginning of summer, preceding a cool autumn which slowed down the ripening process and the crop cycle. The wines derived from the harvest are beautifully ripe and elegant.

Winemaking and ageing

Ageing lasts for 22 months in French oak barrels (100% new).

Blend

The Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 by Col Solare is the fruit of a blend between Cabernet Sauvignon (94%) and Cabernet Franc (6%).

Tasting

The Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 by Col Solare unveils a rich aromatic palette, which fruity (black cherry, redcurrant) and floral notes mix with fragrances of cinnamon, vanilla and milk chocolate. The tannins seduce with their refinement. The finish is persistent and indulgent, with flavours of berries, dried fruits and cocoa.
