This soft, easy-drinking Cabernet is a good introduction to the vintage, and while it will improve over the course of three to eight years, it is not a wine intended for long-term cellaring.

Wine Enthusiast"Editors' Choice" This is one of the producer's deepest value propositions, a well-made, robustly approachable and accessible wine made from 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 3% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Soft and firmly integrated, it's perfumed and floral, with layers of dark cherry and tobacco that evolve with grace in the glass.

Wine SpectatorPure, clean and graceful, this is very rich and well-structured, with a deep, layered core of currant, blackberry, mocha and underbrush, ending with a long, lingering aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2027. 5,700 cases made.

Wine AdvocateA blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 3% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 Claret is a little mute at this youthful stage, offering blackberry and black cherry notes with touches of cedar and spice box. Soft, ripe and with plenty of juicy fruit in the mouth, it has a velvety texture and good length.
