A sophisticated blend in the Bordeaux tradition, this Newton Vineyard Claret is a dark garnet color with vibrant, lifted aromas of black cherry and 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.
This well balanced wine complements grilled meat dishes nicely, but will also prove versatile with a wide variety of foods from hearty pasta dishes to braised beef.
Dense, inky blackish-purple hue. Pretty flavorings of boysenberry, maple and violets. Tart black cherry flavors with hints of black pepper supported by oaky tannins. Tangy finish with a continued black fruit, spice and backing acids.
