Wine Details

Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Our prize offering, the ultra premium Claret, sports a label that honors the first Cabernet Sauvignon blended in a Bordeaux style by Gustave Niebaum in 1910. Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines. This Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise. Borrowing tradition of European wineries, we add gold netting to bottle to signify outstanding quality of wine.

    On the nose it has a delicious aroma of blackberries, some spice, and a punch of cherry. Tasting it starts off slow with a smooth taste, and then the spice opens it up to that toasted oak, and finishes with a strong cherry flavor. Good with steak some salty flavors. Something with rosemary to compliment the spice.
