Brian Carter Cellars Solesce 2009

Columbia Valley, Washington, United StatesSolesce (sol, Latin for 'sun', and essence) is the winery's flagship blend, a time-worthy release based on cabernet sauvignon and accompanied by merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot. Years in bottle have allowed these grapes to meld into a deep, full bodied red, with mature notes of cassis, dried flowers, tar, cherries and a scented wood spice. The generous fruit is bound with plush tannins and stretches to a lengthy finish.Tasted: 28 November 2014Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: WA 56.00 winery direct Producer: Brian Carter CellarsBlend: Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot - Cabernet Franc - Malbec - Petit Verdot
