Highly concentrated raspberry, vanilla bean and Belgian dark chocolate aromatics are threaded with anise, clove and cinnamon. Equally intense flavors of raspberry, black cherry and smoky-toast are complemented by hints of spice. Muscular yet richly supple, this is a wine that rewards with a long, elegantly proportioned finish.
Col Solare is a partnership between two
wine producers who are dominant forces in their respective regions. Tuscany's Marchesi Antinori and Washington State's Chateau Ste. Michelle.
When Marchese Piero Antinori journeyed to Washington's Columbia Valley in 1992, he discovered
an emerging wine region supported by the ardent leadership of Chateau Ste. Michelle.
Col Solare, Italian for shining hill, unites to uniqe viticultural and winemaking cultures with a shared goal
of producing Washington's best Cabernet Suavignon-based wine.
