Made from 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% syrah and aged in 40% new French oak. Opaque ruby. Black and blue fruits on the nose, with a bright, spicy quality adding verve. Sappy, penetrating and gently sweet, offering energetic cassis and boysenberry flavors and a touch of anise. Finishes on a suave, sweet note, with great length, energy and lift (ST)
The 2010 Claret is quite different from previous vintages in that it includes 30% Syrah Goldridge, which gives the wine a sense of structure and tannin that is a bit unusual for this bottling. Racy and dark in its introspection, the 2010 is likely to require a few a good years in bottle before it starts showing well. Olives, black cherries, sage, rosemary and licorice are all woven into the finish. (AG)
Understated and Bordeaux-like in its restraint and flavor profile, offering spice, red bell pepper, red berry and currant flavors. Gracefully balanced, pure and persistent. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. 380 cases made. (JL)
(One Star) With a nicely composed nose of black cherries, plums, creamy oak and a bare wisp of tobacco leaf, Dehlinger's Cabernet/Syrah blend follows with full-sized flavors of dark fruits, briar and olives and steers to richness rather than finesse. It is fleshy and full-bodied with a slight twist of last-minute heat, and we like its chances to grow into better some five years down the line.
