Newton Red Label Claret

Wine Description

(From 2002 Vintage) The 2002 Claret has a perfumed, Bordeaux-like aroma of plums, figs, cranberries, currants, and anise followed by elegant, medium-bodied flavors with a touch of herbs and a nice structure.

Winemaker's Notes

"A sophisticated blend in the Bordeaux tradition with an unexpected addition of a small percentage of Syrah, this wine is all about balance and finesse. Pretty aromas of blueberry, black currant, and red cherry lead to a layered, medium-bodied palate of blackberries, cherries, and plum with a touch of brown spice. Supple tannins, a light touch of oak, and pleasant acidity harmoniously support the clean, bright fruit." -Winery
