2014 Col Solare Cabernet Sauvignon

“This 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a celebration of the 20th vintage of Col Solare. The wine offers aromas of black cherry, currants, cinnamon and rose petals with subtle notes of vanilla and milk chocolate. Tannins are rich and refined on the finish, a characteristic of Red Mountain fruit, with flavors of berries, dried fruit and cocoa that lingers forever.” – Darel Allwine, Winemaker

2014 in Red Mountain was one of the warmest seasons in decades. The ripening period in September cooled to more typical weather for the region. In October temperatures rose again to one of the warmest October months on record. Overall 2014 was an ideal growing season; ripening was excellent for all varieties in all locations.
