Our prize offering, the ultra premium Claret, sports a label that honors the first Cabernet blended in a Bordeaux style by Gustave Niebaum in 1910. Claret is a term originally coined by the British to describe Cabernet-based wines. This Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise.
Our signature red wine, layered with flavors of blackberry, cassis and roasted espresso. Includes Merlot and Cab Franc grown on our estate in Alexander Valley.
Borrowing tradition of European wineries, we add gold netting to bottle to signify outstanding quality of wine.
Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Verdot, 5% Malbec, 3% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc
