- Claar Cabernet - Merlot Columbia Valley 2013 Product #30085 (In Stock)
A lot of gutsy wine for the money here in this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot from Washington state. Rich black currant, blackberry, and cherry fruit is lifted by Bordeaux-like acidity and framed by sexy French and American oak. A beam of red currant pulses through the spicy, smoky, oak flavors on the long, firm, finish. Much more complex and interesting than the modest price suggests!

Pretty much everyone agrees that this is outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon at a great value price. Lovely now.
"Made by Casey McClellan, these are superb, classically styled wines that are more than reasonable priced. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is a rock-solid value that gives up plenty of lead pencil, new leather, black currants and subtle herbal notes to go with a firm, structured, medium-bodied profile on the palate. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and the balance Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec that spent 16 months in 25% new oak, it too will have over a decade of longevity."Wine Advocate 90 points
"Fresh and vibrant, open-textured and appealing, with pure blueberry and currant fruit. A veil of fine tannins drapes over the gentle finish."Wine Spectator 90 points
