An under-the-radar WA red that compels. Black and blue fruit and sweet tannins, vanilla, cigar leaf and oak. 2-3 years to peak but delicious stuff now. Stupendous PV.

Part of my family’s Christmas Claret vertical tasting. Most fragrant nose, very smooth, milder than 2014.

This cab dominant Bordeaux inspired blend is everything you could want. It's got soft tannins giving you a smooth. Matthews' Claret dominates again!
