 Vinous 92 points (Nov 2012)
(73% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 10% cab franc and 2% malbec): Bright full ruby. Pure, vibrant nose offers raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, licorice and spices. Suave and nicely delineated in the mouth, with attractive peppery lift and a light saline nuance to the spicy black and red berry flavors. This Bordeaux blend boasts terrific inner-mouth perfume, a restrained sweetness and the medicinal reserve to support slow aging in bottle. The long, firmly tannic finish leaves notes of currant and tobacco behind, along with a building oakiness.
 Wine Spectator 91 points (Mar 31 2013)
Dark and dense, with crunchy tannins around a solid core of black cherry and currant flavors, shaded with notes of sage and a hint of wet stone. Finishes strong. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2019. 9,000 cases made. -HS
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Jun 2013)
The most structured and tannic of the lineup and a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and a splash of Malbec that was harvested during the second week of September, the 2009 Col Solare obviously comes from a warm vintage. Offering up ripe, decadently styled aromas of blackberry, kirsch, licorice and classic Red Mountain crushed stone-like minerality (42% of the blend is from Red Mountain) on the nose, it is a big rich 2009 that has solid mid-palate depth and layers of fruit that only partially cover full-throttle tannin. Needing time to round into shape, it will benefit from another 2-3 years of bottle- age and have a solid 15+ years of overall longevity. Drink 2015-2024.
