Last weekend I had the chance to open up the 2012 Col Solare Red Wine (WWB, 94) which is absolutely singing in its silky state now at the eight year mark. Following a two hour decant the wine showed marvelous graphite, and anise aromas, followed by tones of tar and milk chocolate that all melded brilliantly in the glass. The palate showed really good viscosity and depth with a pillowy texture. Brandy soaked cherries, pipe tobacco, blackberry compote and cocoa powder with sagebrush accents all collide on the palate. The long, dark fruit and mineral-driven finish completes this stunning wine. A long-ager, showing a good combination of weight and poise, this glorious Col Solare is truly hitting its stride and has another decade of life ahead of it. Drink 2020-2030- 94

Very dark flavors and juicy blend. Moderate tannins without acidity. And easy to drink
