"Polished, focused and generous, this 2013 vintage of Col Solare offers aromatics and flavors of black cherry, cassis, crushed berries, and tobacco along with a rich and silky palate that lingers forever." —winemaker

Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 2% Syrah
"Coming from the Col Solare and Quintessence vineyards on Red Mountain, the 2013 Proprietary Red is a rich, fabulously textured, full-bodied effort the has tons of black cherry and cassis fruits intermixed with notes of licorice, smoked herbs, graphite and lead pencil aromas and flavors. Made from a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 2% Malbec that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak, drink this pure, layered and polished Red Mountain Bordeaux blend over the coming 15-20 years." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"Bright medium ruby. Claret-like aromas of raspberry, currant and spices lifted by a floral quality. Juicy, spicy and intense, with well-delineated red berry and mineral flavors sweetened by spicy oak. Finishes with a firm spine of broad, dusty tannins and excellent length. Very classy wine. Drinking window: 2018 - 2026." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

"Cabernet Sauvignon (88%) takes the lead on this wine, with the balance Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Aromas of blackberry, blue fruit, flowers and barrel spice are followed by pitch-black-fruit flavors. Lightly chewy tannins provide some heft but have room to broaden." —Sean Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
