Winemaker Corey Beck Notes
2008 was a challenging vintage that delivered a very small crop as a result of spring frost that devastated many of the vines. In fact, some vineyards lost 50% of their fruit. The upside to having fewer grape clusters is the aromatics become more profound and flavors more concentrated and complex. Elegant and well balanced, this year’s Claret displays lush fruit flavors, smooth tannins and intriguing spice nuances. Diamond Collection Claret pairs beautifully with beef tenderloin, grilled lamb chops or fettuccini with Gorgonzola cream sauce.
