2011 Col Solare Red Wine Blend

“Aromas of black cherry, currants, and blackberry blend with subtle notes of vanilla and milk chocolate. Tannins are rich and refined on the finish, a characteristic of Red Mountain fruit.”

– Marcus Notaro, Winemaker

The 2011 growing season got off to a late start and remained a cool, but even, growing season. Relatively good weather at the end of September and in early October helped complete ripening and produced wines with fruity aromatics, good color.


77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec
