2011 Clark-Claudon Estate Cabernet

IN THE VINEYARDS & WINERY

We are pleased to announce the release of our exquisite 2011 Estate Cabernet. While acknowledging the difficulties that many growers faced in 2011, our ‘11 is an absolute stand out.

We couldn't help but say “WHEW!” as the cold rains fell and our beautiful grapes were safely fermenting in the winery. Again, our shattered soils, steep mountain terraces and years of experience, assured perfectly ripened fruit.

Pursuing a meticulous selection process, only the best fruit from five separate vineyard blocks was chosen for the 2011 vintage.  As you will experience, their palette of aromas, flavors, and textures have been perfectly blended to create this lovely hand crafted wine.

WINEMAKER NOTES

Deep garnet in color, this exceptional 2011, will entice your nose with delicious aromas of dark stone fruit, cured meats, spicy florals, and deep chocolate sauce.  Full and rich in the mouth, the ’11 holds layers of rich ripe plums, baked rhubarb, cherries, milk chocolate and a hint of herbs all coming together in a long sumptuous finish.

This very fresh wine, with seamless texture and very well integrated tannins is definitely a vintage that will show beautifully now and for years to come.
