Tasting NotesThe Claret is styled after great Bordeaux Cab blends. The vineyard gives a distinctive licorice, tar, plum, blackberry flavor profile. The goal is a complex wine with bright fruit flavors balanced by spice, herbal, and minerality. The finish is typically refreshingly dry with fine-grained tannins and nice acidity. 2010 is bolder than usual and will drink earlier than a typical White Rock Claret vintage. Small yields led to very concentrated fruit and delicious plump flavors.
