2008 Col Solare Red Wine Blend

“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.”

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.


67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Syrah
