Tasting Note

Col Solare is Italian for “shining hill” – an appropriate name for this ultra-luxury Cabernet Sauvignon blend which represents the pinnacle of the talents of two influential wine producers from Italy and America. Tuscany’s Marchesi Antinori and Washington State’s Chateau Ste. Michelle have joined forces to create a premium wine which offers flavours of crushed berries, cassis, and hints of tobacco, along with a silky palate and a lingering finish.

  • This wine is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) with the remainder Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Reserved aromas of toast, high-toned herbs, coffee and blue and black fruit lead to dense, rich, structured dark fruit flavours that show depth along with vibrant acidity and a long finish. This wine is built for the long haul and will be best from 2021–2028. 93/100

  • Up there with the best vintages of this cuvee to date, Col Solare's 2012 Proprietary Red (a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak) has textbook Red Mountain structure and depth, as well as lots of crème de cassis, black raspberries, chocolate, melted liquorice and spice. Big, voluptuous, layered and ripe, with a dense, chewy texture and a big finish, it’s certainly fun to drink now, but will be better with short-term cellaring and have two decades of overall longevity. 94/100

  • A bright and vibrant red, exhibiting juicy blackberry and floral flavours that dance lightly over refined tannins and linger on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
