A classic Bordeaux-style winemaking protocol enhances the aromatics of slight spice, earth, coconut, and chocolate in this red blend. The palate is perfectly balanced with subtle oak notes and flavors of currant, cocoa and dark berries that lead to a lingering finish.
"The 2006 Walter Clore Private Reserve is composed of 66% Merlot and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 30 months in new French oak. It exhibits notes of pain grille, pencil lead, damp earth, herbs, and balsamic. This leads to a full-bodied, ripe, layered wine with excellent depth, concentration, and length. Give it 3-4 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2026."
