Our family, along with winemaker Frederic Delivert, sat down to the amazing task of reviewing our wines from the inaugural 1993 to the upcoming 2007.
We had three objectives;
- Facilitate Frederic's in depth knowledge of our wines from vintage to vintage
- Evaluate where we have been & where we are going
- Celebrate 15 years of Clark-Claudon history
There was much to celebrate!!!
Year to year these stellar wines were bright, fresh, balanced, beautifully rich & alluringly sexy, while most had the acidity & back bone to assure continued aging. Importantly, they were not only amazingly delicious, but they were also consistently flawless.
Favorites of the Tasting; the 1995, 2005 & the Upcoming 2007
These 3 vintages were unanimous favorites. Each was a perfect example of what you look for in a truly great Cabernet; deep dark color, exquisite aromas, rich full mouth feel, beautiful structure, perfect balance, well integrated tannins & a long sumptuous finish. These are sexy wines that speak of place!
