Tasting Notes2009 showed a concentrated flavor profile in this vintage of White Rock Claret. The nose opens with deep boysenberry and raspberry, cedar, and a hint of violet. The fruit notes give way to elegant chocolate, and savory spices, with a succulent and round mouth feel. A balance of tannin and a long full finish show the integration of each traditional Bordeaux varietal, and its unique expression of Napa Valley.
