The 2012 Claret appears to be another outstanding example of value-priced Cabernet Sauvignon. A 6,000-case blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and the rest Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, consumers will love this beauty because of its forward, classic Cabernet style. It should drink well for 5-8 years.

Robert Parker(2002 Vintage) "The seductive, dark plum/purple-colored 2002 Claret (3,500 cases) reveals a voluptuous texture along with wonderfully sweet notes of cedar, chocolate, black currants, raspberries, and roasted coffee in a succulent, opulent, full-bodied style that is hard to resist. Even the barrel sample could have been drunk with great pleasure. Get on the bandwagon as David Ramey is on top of his game."
