Nose/Aroma -Blackberries, toasted oak, and earthiness.
Palate/Flavors -Complex flavor profile, not fruit dominated. Overripe blackberries and blueberries, charred oak, and truffles with a medium body and nice structure. Acid was a bit tighter than expected.
Food Pairing - Patacones ticos with black beans.
Comments - Seems like it could stand up for another couple years easily. Solanera is a wine custom made for US wine importer Eric Solomon and consistently earns acclaim.
