This 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a celebration of the 20th vintage of Col Solare. The wine offers aromas of black cherry, currants, cinnamon and rose petals with subtle notes of vanilla and milk chocolate. Tannins are rich and refined on the finish, a characteristic of Red Mountain fruit, with flavors of berries, dried fruit and cocoa that lingers forever.” – Darel Allwine, Winemaker
94 Points Wine Advocate - Another inky colored red, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Component Collection (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) gives up lots of cassis, black raspberries, leafy herbs and liquid flower aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied, nicely concentrated and balanced, I love its purity and finesse, and it's going to benefit from short term cellaring and keep for over a decade.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast - The aromas bring notes of plum, blue fruit and barrel spice. The palate comes off as considerably darker, with rich fruit flavors supported by firm tannins. There are lots of good things going on if the aromas and flavors sync up, though it doesn't seem much like Cabernet.
