Winemaker’s Notes: Straw yellow color, with flashes of lemon that give the wine notes of maturity. In the mouth it is ample, unctuous, and caresses the palate, spewing harmoniously fruity notes of peach, apricot, honey. Its aromatic and gustative profile define its equilibrium. Clean and elegant, of compact structure and great precision.

Winemaker’s Notes: This soft, easy-drinking Cabernet blend is a good introduction to the vintage, and while it will improve over the course of three to eight years, it is not a wine intended for long-term cellaring.
68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 6% Syrah, 4% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot.
90 Points Robert Parker: The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Claret has a fantastic combination of red and black fruits—black raspberries, black plums, redcurrants and black cherries—with suggestions of cigar box and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, chewy structure and a great core of crunchy fruit, finishing long and earthy.
