"One of the finest bargains of my Washington tastings is the 2006 Claret, a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot, and 5% Malbec. It spent 23 months in 60% new French oak. Purple-colored, it offers an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, spice box, violets, cassis, and blackberry.
