Claret 2012

Columbia Valley, Washington

WINEMAKER NOTES

The “Brits” might call it clear, pale or light colored, but our Claret is nothing but dark, bright and juicy! Crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it was surely made for you to enjoy every day and for every occasion. Stellar fruit and creative wine making techniques laid a solid foundation for this wine and it aged gracefully in neutral French and American oak for 20 months. A selection of barrels from different lots was chosen and blended to-gether in perfect harmony prior to bottling. Enjoy!
