Review

Sweet tobacco, plums, mint and anise all meld together in the 2011 Claret. An attractive, mid-weight wine, the 2011 is best enjoyed over the next handful of years. Savory herbs, crushed flowers and a hint of French oak linger on the finish. The 2011 naturally lacks the structure and depth of the very best vintages, but the super-classic flavor profile is quite appealing.
