VERTICAL: Claret 2005-2007 3pk 750ml
2005 Claret – 94 points, Robert Parker Jr.
The prodigious 2005 Claret possesses a dense purple color in addition to beautiful aromas of crème de cassis, smoke, graphite, and cedar. Full-bodied, opulent, and voluptuously textured with superb depth and purity in addition to a savory mouthfeel, and surprisingly fleshy, forward personality, it should last 10-15 years, but who will be able to resist it for that long?
2006 Claret – 94 points, Wine Spectator
Smooth, rich and complex, this is full-bodied, with firm, focused currant, sage and dusty berry fruit that runs deep with concentration, unfolding to reveal blackberry, mineral and light cedary oak flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2010 through 2016.
2007 Claret – 98 points, Robert Parker Jr.
The extraordinary 2007 Claret, which is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine, displays inky notes of lead pencil shavings, pen ink, creme de cassis, blackberry, incense, and licorice. The wine is super-pure and super-rich, an extraordinarily full-bodied powerhouse of a Cabernet Sauvignon that should evolve for 15 or more years. Its sweetness of tannin and headiness already make it accessible.
