2009 Claret, Red Blend
Sweet red berries, flowers, licorice and tobacco are some of the notes that take shape in this relative easygoing, mid-weight wine. The 2009 tends towards a redder expression of fruit, more overt floral tones and a generally feminine expression of fruit.
Firm, fine-grained tannins and snappy red and black berry fruit, all shaded by spice and fresh earth notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. ”~ J. Laube, The Wine Spectator, 92 pts
