St. Francis Claret 2014


SKU 15750


Claret is the British-inspired name for an elegant red blend of classic Bordeaux varietals, in this case Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend is juicy and expressive with layered aromas of cranberry, cherry cola and currants merging with vibrant flavors of dark red berries and spices. The creamy entry finishes smooth yet structured. Food Pairings: An excellent companion to roast beef, boeuf bourguignon, grilled or roasted lamb, aged Cheddar and blue cheese.

Wine EnthusiastThis old-school blend of Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon shows ample body and flavor in its unfussy approach to succulent red fruit and subdued tannin. Moderate in build, it has dusty acidity and a soft finish that will please a wide range of palates.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Claret gives a medium to deep garnet color and nose of baked black berries and plums with hints of charcoal, menthol and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers great fruit intensity and soft, approachable tannins with good length and plenty of freshness.
