Tasting Notes

From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Finely etched cassis, blackberry, cherry and tobacco aromas are complicated by dried rose and white pepper. Bright red and dark berry flavors are crisp and unadorned (this saw no new barrels), with gentle tannins adding grip to the finish. Ramey told me that this is made from his cabernet press wines and that it's 'for roast chicken, not steak.' " (May/Jun '08) From Robert Parker: "Fashioned from lots culled out from all of David Ramey’s Cabernet projects, the 2005 Claret is a stylish, delicious red that is meant to be consumed during its first 7-8 years of life. It offers up aromas of cherries, underbrush, black currants, and cedar. Evolved and medium-bodied with a silky finish, it will drink well for 5-7 years." (Dec. 2007) From Wine Spectator: "Aromas of strawberry and plum jam are medium-bodied, supple and graceful. Well-balanced and easy-drinking, firming up on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2016. 6,100 cases made." (Jul. 31, 2008)
