    Region: Spain

    Varietal: Other Red Blends

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 92702

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The name comes from "Finca La Solana" - very sunny in Spanish. From 40+ year old vines.

    Varieties: 65% Monastrell, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Garnacha Tintorera

    Critical Acclaim:

    Saturated purple. Smoky raspberry and cherry on the nose, with a sexy mocha quality adding complexity. Fleshy, round dark fruit liqueur flavors caress rather than pummel the palate. Gentle tannins arrive late to add structure but this is all about silky, juicy fruit.

    i bought several bottles of this wine earlier in the year for a party at a very reasonable price, and we were very pleased with it. Nice and smooth, a great drink. Quite a nice surprise. Glad to see it on wine.com

    Tasted a little heavy at first; but after having had a time to breathe, was quite pleasant.

    It was harsh and acidic at first, let it breathe awhile and improved but just not enough for me.

    This wine was harsh and acidic. I didn't care for it at all. And it's the first wine ordered from Wine.com that I didn't like.
