Anyone can produce a great wine in a great year, but the ones who consistently reach excellence in the difficult years are the true winemaking artists.  After producing a ’98 that Robert Parker described as, “…a seamless classic,” Clark-Claudon Vineyards has done it again. 

“This winery has not missed a beat since its debut vintage, and their 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon, from a difficult year, is outstanding.  A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and hints of minerals, graphite, and spice box.  Supple-textured and elegant with a rich, long, medium to full-bodied finish, it will drink effortlessly for 10-12 years.”  90 points

— Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, December 2003

TASTING NOTES

Our 2000 Cabernet is a rich elegant wine whose trademark deep purple core draws you in to enjoy aromas of pronounced ripe plums, raspberries & black berries with underlying damp cedar.  This very complex wine then reveals hidden layers of wet earth & stones while nuances of cassis accompany a warm, full, deliciously rich mouth feel with well integrated tannins and perfect balance.  The long yummy finish will provoke you to linger in comfort before it invites you in for more.
