Mostly Merlot, with quite a bit of Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, Newton's Claret is a clear, deep red color with touches of black cherry. On the nose, the balance is harmonized between coffee, pepper and fresh blueberries. Fruits, like blackcurrant, cranberry and cherry, evolve on the palate and linger with a spring-like freshness.

Was a bit acidic with strong alcohol on the tongue, but a longer breathing time reveals nice deep fruit.
It's great that this is still available in CA - but drink it up! It's ready to go and won't last many more years. Super smooth, lovely fruit melds together the tannins and acid. Great for a myriad of foods, too.
as a standalone or with a meal just great little bottle of wine. I think some time would make it even better. I'm buying more.
Shared this wine with family during the holiday break and it was liked by all.

A great find. If you are looking for a well priced wine to serve with dinner or just to friends over a few light snacks, this is the way to go. Your friends will be thrilled with the taste, and for the price, you can keep the bar open as long as they want.

The 2001 Claret is simply delicious, so much so that it's hard to stop drinking! If you open one bottle, you're bound to open another --- so keep a 1/2 case on hand!
