Rich and full of flavor, this 2008 vintage of Col Solare offers aromatics of cassis, black fruit, and tobacco, and an elegant, silky, lasting finish.

A cool spring and moderate summer in the Columbia Valley delayed harvest slightly and allowed for extended hang time, leading to fruit with elegant tannins and optimum sugar levels. A hot spell in late August led into a cool fall, providing good conditions to complete ripening.

Vineyard Notes
CABERNET SAUVIGNON from Klipsun (Red Mountain), Cold Creek (Columbia Valley), Coyote Canyon (Horse Heaven Hills), and Kiona Heart of the Hill (Red Mountain) provided great ripeness and power, while Cabernet fruit from Hedges (Red Mountain), Four Feathers (Columbia Valley), and Stone Tree (Wahluke Slope) along with MERLOT from Coyote Canyon (Horse Heaven Hills) was more fruit-centered and helped soften the blend. Merlot from Four Feathers and Klipsun (Red Mountain), added both power and complexity, while CABERNET FRANC from Cold Creek added black fruits and spice to the final blend. A small amount of Syrah from Ranch at the End of the Road (Red Mountain) was also added to increase mouthfeel and texture.
Food Pairing Notes
rich meat dishes, lamb, game and grilled steak
