2009 Col Solare Red Wine Blend

“Rich and full of flavor, this 2009 vintage of Col Solare offers aromatics and flavors of crushed berries, cassis, black fruit, and tobacco along with a rich and silky palate and a lingering finish.”

– Darel Allwine, Winemaker

The 2009 growing season began very cool in the spring, then turned hot during the summer months and into the harvest season. With low yields and small berry size, the vintage was characterized by powerful tannins and rich flavors, particularly for Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.


73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec
