The origin of Claret is a British term for a Bordeaux Blend. This claret is dark ruby in color. The aromas are cedar, vanilla, and blackberries and the warmth of toasty oak. The wine is full-bodied and round with up-front, sweet fruit flavors. The wine has a persistent finish.
1/3 Cabernet Sauvignon, 1/3 Cabernet Franc, 1/3 Petit Verdot .
This wine truly lives up to the name, claret. It is a medium bodied, lower alcohol wine with very complex elements in its aroma and taste. It is a true Bordeaux style wine.
