Solus – Vintage 2007

This is our inaugural release of a purely varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has an almost bluish-purple hue. The nose opens with sour cherry and cranberry fruit. Following notes include tanned leather, wood smoke, sweet tobacco, mint and rose petals. At first the flavors are a little tight and edgy. But the wine has solid acidity and a firm backbone of tannin, and softens easily with decanting and aeration in the glass. I feel this wine has the stuffing and structure to age well and for quite a long period. Complementary foods demand steak or lamb, with any combination of tomatoes, olives and garlic.
