2015 Matthews Reserve Claret

2015 Matthews Reserve Claret
2015 Matthews Reserve Claret
"The 2015 Reserve Claret checks in as 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that saw more new oak, spending 22 months in 80% new barrels. Similarly inky colored, with beautiful blue fruits, violets, cedar and incense aromatics, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, fine, polished tannin, and nicely integrated acidity. It's balanced, has beautiful purity, and a great finish."

Tasting notes

“Red and black currants, smoke, spiced plum and black cherry. Swirling brings up red fruits and sandalwood. Fresh, but ripe, with bright fruit and good tension. Long and smooth tannins with a finish of plum, blackberry and vanilla bean spice."-Aryn Morell, winemaker

Production notes

Fermented in 68% concrete and 32% stainless steel tanks. Aged 22 months in 80% New French Oak barrels.

Other notes

Drinkability: Now-2028

Matthews Reserve Claret lends itself to delicious roasted or grilled meats. The cedar aromatics pair well with smoked meats. This wine has fine tannins and nice acidity, which means that it will also pair well with a variety of cheese. One imagines a nicely charred fatty prime rib, topped with blue cheese!
