The morning mists in the Smokey Hollow Vineyard roll back as early morning sunshine warms the vines and ripens our Riesling grapes. Formerly home to dark, sweet cherry trees, this clay and gravel soil now succors heavy clusters of this classic, cool-climate grape. Exceptional growing conditions yield fruit with notes of crisp citrus and hints of pure minerals.
Our Claret is a Bordeaux-Style red wine blend. These sun-ripened grapes produce flavors of plum, black cherries and red raspberries. By aging our Claret in French Oak barrels, we enhance the natural spices of cinnamon and black pepper, creating balance and complexity.
The spices and cedar notes in our Claret complement cuisine such as Garlic Pepper Grilled Beef Tenderloin. Additionally, the supple tannins and dark fruit pair perfectly with Lamb Lollipops.
71% Cabernet Franc, 28% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
