2016 Col Solare Cabernet Sauvignon

This 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon 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.

Vintage

The 2016 vintage on Red Mountain experienced the best of both worlds with a hot spring and early summer, but also a cool fall season. Cooler temperatures in August and September, slowed down ripening and resulted in longer hang time. Overall, 2016 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing wines with ripeness and elegance.

Blend

94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc
