A Proprietary Blend wine from Washington in USA. 2000 Col Solare (Ste Michelle, Chateau) Red Table Wine 1500ml


Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKERS' NOTES 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. VINTAGE The 2000 vintage produced exceptional grapes brimming with flavor and structural complexity. Mild temperature patterns early in the growing season led to an early bud break. Warm, dry and stable conditions continued throughout the summer months with two short episodes of cool, wet weather interrupting the otherwise ideal weather. A cold front in late-September slowed the ripening process, which extended time on the vine. This allowed for the grapes to reach ideal sugar accumulation and to develop intense flavors. VINTERS 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. ANALYSIS AT BOTTLING Percentage Alcohol.......14.0% Total Acidity............0.61/100ml pH.......................3.60 Blend....................86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Syrah
