    Winemaker's Notes:

    A sophisticated blend in the Bordeaux tradition, this Newton Vineyard Claret is a dark garnet color with vibrant, lifted aromas of black cherry, currant supported by spicy and smoky hints of nutmeg and white pepper. The palate reveals blueberry, black plum and black cherry with a white pepper spice indicative of cool climate mountain fruit. The creamy mid-palate and silky tannins make this medium-weight wine an approachable, appealing choice.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a very fine wine, Merlot-based with a splash of Syrah, and it proves you don't have to spend a lot to get a great Napa red. It shows rich, complex flavors of black and red currants, licorice, cola and sandalwood, in an elegantly silky structure that’s light and refined.

    Great red to have on hand. Brought it to a wine snob friend's house and it passed the test.

    Not a lot of complexity with this one, pretty straight forward. I didn't find it bold, but it is a young blend. The price is hard to beat.

    I love dry, full-bodied reds. This has got to be one of the best ever for $20. I purchased two bottles and I'm going back for a few more before it's too late. Great with steak.

    Good color and nose; spice and berry flavors complement well. Might be a bit overpowering and bitter to some but shouldn't be an issue with more time. Not a 93, but a great value at $20

    I have had this wine many times and it always impresses me and then when I think I only spent $20. on it, the value goes higher
