    Winemaker's Notes:

    Showcasing lots of finesse, this classic Bordeaux-style wine opens with aromatics of coconut, boysenberry and blackberry. The soft palate displays flavors of chocolate and cherries that are balanced with hints wood and fruit. These notes bring out the elegance of this powerful and enticing wine that cumulates to a lingering finish of coconut and cocoa.

    65.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32.1% Merlot, 2.7% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Smooth and spicy, with nutmeg and caramel notes and a few floral touches around a solid core of blackberry and blueberry character, finishing with firm texture. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2012 through 2017.

    Wine Spectator

    The purple-colored 2007 Walter Clore Private Reserve Red Wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc that spent 30 months in barrel. Toasty oak, mineral, violets, spice box, herbs, and assorted black fruits set the stage for a concentrated, dense, flavorful blend that will evolve for 2-3 years and offer peak drinking from 2014 to 2022, perhaps longer.

    The Wine Advocate

    A fine rendition of this wine that honors the founding father of the Washington wine industry. Elegant and polished, it blends classic Bordeaux varieties into a complete and satisfying wine with mixed black fruits, coffee grounds, loam, pencil shavings and fresh-cut tobacco. Drinking well already, it will age gracefully for up to a decade.

    Right out of the bottle muskie. A little to spiky for me. Found this perfect with BBQ Beef Ribs. The tang counters well.
