The 2006 Col Solare is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Syrah. The wine was aged in 75% French and 25% American oak, 100% new. Deep crimson-colored, it displays a captivating perfume of sandalwood, lavender, incense, spice box, black cherry, black currant, and a hint of chocolate. Medium-bodied, elegant, and already complex, it has layers of succulent fruit, impeccable balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will continue to evolve for another 4-6 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2026. A polished red, delivering a lively mouthful of blueberry and currant fruit shaded with nice hints of cream and white pepper. The finish lingers seductively. This is distinctive¿and much smoother in texture than previous vintages. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and others. Drink now through 2014. 11,000 cases made. -HS Col Solare, the collaboration between Ste. Michelle and Antinori, brought in the first estate grapes this year, but it will be awhile before it becomes an estate wine. The current vintage uses five varieties from a half dozen vineyards scattered across four different AVAs. It's soft, fruity and open, with a firm core of black fruits wrapped into lightly smoky, polished tannins. - P.G. Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, plum, spices, graphite and tobacco. Suave and moderately intense, with slightly tart red berry flavors framed by edgy acidity. Plenty of spicy oak here. This rather laid-back wine needs some bottle aging.

Wine Tasting Notes Aromas of cherry, black cherry and black current fruits fuse with smooth notes of vanilla, clove, and tobacco. Rich and balanced on the palate, this wine finishes with long, lingering flavors of cocoa, black current, and vanilla.
