 Vinous 90 points (Dec 2014)
(this collaboration between Marchesi Antinori and Chateau Ste. Michelle consists of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec): Bright, saturated ruby. Pure, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet and licorice. At once seamless and extremely backward, displaying the cool side of the vintage in spite of possessing very good intensity and depth. Shows a medicinal reserve to its black fruit, licorice and fresh herb flavors. This will merit a higher score if it develops more sweetness and pliancy with time in bottle. 90+ Points
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Jun 2014)
More approachable, yet still beautiful, the 2011 Col Solare checks in as a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. It exhibits classy ripe black currants, charred meats, licorice and toasty notes to go with a full-bodied, layered and seamless feel on the palate. Lacking the back-end level of concentration found in the 2010, it is nevertheless beautifully balance and seamless, with fine tannin showing on the finish. Give it a year or two and drink it through 2026.
