“Rich and full of flavor, this 2008 vintage of Col Solare offers aromatics of cassis, black fruit, and tobacco, and an elegant, silky, lasting finish.”
– Marcus Notaro, Winemaker
A cool spring and moderate summer in the Columbia Valley delayed harvest slightly and allowed for extended hang time, leading to fruit with elegant tannins and optimum sugar levels. A hot spell in late August led into a cool fall, providing good conditions to complete ripening.
