    I'm always on the hunt for Cabernet values, and this lovely wine from Clairault is a great new arrival, that completely blows me away at this price point. Don't hesitate to try this Cabernet--the wine shows serious attention to detail from the cool black fruit, subtle savory herbal notes, through to the well-integrated tannin and fine cut of acidity. Absolutely a food-friendly wine, this Cabernet is one of our very best new bottles!

    Margaret River Cabernet has quickly become my go-to for incredibly well done and affordable Cabernet. Often this region can showcase the beauty of New World fruit with Old World sensibilities. That is to say, beautiful rich full-bodied fruit backed by longer, leaner, casking. The Clairault White Label shows just this style beautifully. Lovely ripe black and red berry are tinged with savory herb and tobacco on the nose. On the palate, there is definitely plenty of tannin and structure, yet the finish manages to stay elegant on the finish. A perfect wine for a big meal and good times.

    The baby brother to Clairault's (Black Label) Estate Cab this sibling won't easily be outdone. Sharing many of the flagship's traits - juicy dark fruit, bay leaf, tobacco, mint, fine tannin and notable length - this is serious Cabernet for the money. Sourced from Clairault's estate holdings and some neighboring vineyards, this little guy packs some serious bang for the buck. If you like Cabernet from a more moderate to cool climate (think Bordeaux / Santa Cruz Mountains) this wine is more than worthy of your attention. Clairault is a new direct import for us at K&L and you can see the staff are already raving about them. Top value.

    Margret River Cabernet is the gold standard on the continent for refined expressions and Clairault is a champion of that superior style. The white label wines are a good entry point into the Clairault lineup of wines and the 2014 cab delivers on their promise. Blackberries and spice pour out of the glass and the bouquet develops clarity with each inviting sniff: dried cherry, bay leaf, potpourri, hints of tar and a dusty earthiness all jockey for attention. On the palate the wine continues its bold features with a round yet balanced presence that includes medium weight tannins and the introduction of cassis in the fruit profile.

    If you are looking for an affordable, quintessentially Margaret River Cab Sauv, look no further than this guy. It shows the classic hints of stemmy, woodsiness many of the Cabs from this area carry, and that is a great thing. These are unique wines and an incredible value from a well-loved estate. Still tasting pretty young, I believe this one to have great aging potential. Well deserved of its 94 point score, Clairault Cabs should be on you radar if they are not already.

    Intense nose with concentrated dark fruits, tapenade, bay leaf and a hint of eucalyptus. The nose is impressive, inviting and complex. Ripe and rich entry with round mouth filling polished tannins with just a hint of oak. The dark fruits are back with a brighter berry nose as well as tapenade and muted herbal notes. What a deal!
