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

(From 2009 Vintage) This dark garnet-colored wine offers spicy aromas of clove and cinnamon layered with dark fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry supported by juniper and sage. The dark fruit flavors carry through to the palate, combining with dark chocolate notes on the soft mid-palate.
