Winemaker's Notes

A Superman's Merlot! A 2/3 - 1/3 blend with Cabernet Sauvignon and just a splash of Petit Verdot, the depth of color makes for a virtually opaque appearance. Ripe red cherry, cassis and a trace of cedar grace the aromatic medley. Sweet rich textures flood the palate with berry, chocolate and espresso flavors framed by fine mouthwatering tannins. These flavors linger in an exceptional finish that extends for several minutes.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2002 Reserve Claret possesses a lush texture as well as a huge, upfront, flamboyant bouquet of vanilla, spice box, blueberries, white chocolate, licorice, and toasty oak. This 400-case blend of two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon is elegant yet incredibly rich, dense, and seamless. It is drinking beautifully, and should continue to do so for 12-14 years."
