The goal when making Claret is not only to showcase Cabernet Sauvignon and its Bordeaux blending partners, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, but also to demonstrate the diversity of California's many distinguished growing regions. Rich, lively flavors of succulent blackberry, currant, and wild strawberry are wrapped in soft, smooth tannins. Winery
like that 13.5%, more like Bordeaux, but little fuller. much better than TJ Reserve Cab @ $10 drink more ##
too strong with lamb. not a drinking wine. must b accompanied with strong flavored food.
explosive when first opening dry loses body next day
wet, fruity delicious table wine. exceptional for any red wine meal.
strong flavors require more flavored meat to drink with
