Smoke, tobacco leaf, and cherries with a touch of spice show up in the nose. The palate is where this shines, with its wealth of rich, supple, smoky, red fruits, and cigar wrappers that linger from start to finish. Give it only a year or two in the cellar and it will be even better. In part, due to low yields, as well as their new cellars, this is clearly the finest vintage of Domaine de la Solitude ever produced. The wine blends 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. 14%ABV. Drink from 2027-2038. 91-93 Pts.
