Description

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 91 points 
The 2016 Claret is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 8% Syrah and 2% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep ruby-purple, it offers aromas of bay leaf, sage brush, cardamom, anise and clove with mint chocolate, underbrush, blackberries and blackcurrants. It’s medium to full-bodied, rounded and easygoing in the mouth, with gentle, grainy tannins and great freshness to lift the finish. It would be all too easy to glug a bottle of this “luncheon Cab,” as David Ramey calls it. 4,927 cases produced.

Jeb Dunnuck – 90 points
The 2016 Claret is a pretty, elegant blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 12% Malbec, and the rest Syrah and Petit Verdot. This medium-bodied, silky, nicely textured red offers notes of ripe black cherries, currants, and assorted tobacco and herbal notes, and it’s textured and balanced. Drink it over the coming decade.
