Behind every wine is an idea. Col Solare is the fruit of the shared desire of Chateau St. Michelle and Antinori to experiment with the potential of the Columbia Valley. Making wine is a partnership with nature, a dialogue between land and imagination, terroir and technology.
Antinori contributed a heritage of expertise and a passion for innovation; Chateau St. Michelle in turn offered unlimited inspiration and vineyards suited to the production of well-structured red wines.
Thus the partnership began and the result was one of the most original wines in the world: Col Solare, first produced in 1995. Columbia Valley enjoys long sunny days and very hot summers, a climate favourable to very rich fruity grapes. The cold winters allow the vines to rest long enough to produce grapes with an intensely varietal character, thanks also to the predominantly loess soil.Col Solare is characterful, well-structured wine, vinified in order to age stylishly for a long period of time. It is very fruity (black berry fruit) and mature tannins endow it with body and structure. Full-bodied, aromatic, intense.Col Solare is an original interpretation of the Columbia Valley.
Ruby red.
Aromas of dark chocolate, cherry and currant are joined by hints of vanilla and clove.
The aromatics carry through the rich and balanced palate.

Vinification Grapes were gently crushed, and lots fermented separately on the skins for an average of seven to ten days. During this time, a twice-daily pump over regime infused the fermenting juice with flavor, soft tannins and color. The wine was pressed from the skins into 60% French and 40% American oak, with 100% new oak barrels. Racking occurred during the 26-months aging, and winemakers Doug Gore and Renzo Cotarella tasted through the best wine lots to create the final blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Egg white fining occurred just before bottling.
