- White Rock Vineyards Claret Napa 2009 Product #28118 (In Stock)
A Napa Valley legend, White Rock turns out just 3,000 cases of Chardonnay and Cabernet from it's small vineyard in Soda Canyon - all with old-school Napa style and up-to-date quality. The 2009 Claret is about 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with equal parts Cab Franc and Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, all aged 32 months in French oak (40% new). Lovely aromas of boysenberry, currant, raspberry and cedar lead to a detailed mouthful of fruit and savory spice flavors with a nice hint of violet. Firm tannins give this the heft it needs to pair with lamb, although there's enough fruit to just enjoy on it's own now and for 10+ years.
