Winemaker's Notes

The 1996 vintage of this wine was ranked #8 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1998

Solengo is a modern, well balanced and full-bodied wine. It has a deep black, purple coloor with a bouquet of ripe fruits, such as black currant and blackberry, infused with toasty oak. It is soft on the palate with great concentration of lush fruit nicely in balance with its fine, smooth tannins. The palate finds impressive structure and complexity tempered by exemplary tannic extracts. This high profile blend has evident Mediterranean characteristics with a sunny character. Its grace and gentleness enable an early drinking, nevertheless after a few years of bottle aging, the wine will develop more complexity and depth.

Critical Acclaim

"Full and velvety, with so much cassis and sweet tobacco on the nose and palate. A little hard on the long finish. But should open with bottle age. To be released spring 2011. Best after 2012. 750 cases made."
92 Points

"The 2007 Solengo (30% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot, 20% Syrah) is sleek and refined in its blackberries, blueberries, grilled herbs, spices and graphite. The wine reveals gorgeous length and fine balance in a relatively accessible, mid-weight style for this bottling. The 2007 doesn’t appear to have the structure of the 2006 and it should be enjoyed over the next decade, give or take. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019."
