2005 Claret, Napa Valley

Winemaker Notes

The fifth edition of Claret, this is our entry-level Cabernet blend. Fully one-third comes from the Jericho Canyon Vineyard; this year's blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 7% Syrah and 1% each Malbec and Petit Verdot. The Claret is raised in barrel as all of our Cabernets, but none of them are new.
