2015 Matthews Claret

"The 2015 Claret checks in as a 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot which spent 20 months in 51% new French oak. Cassis, blueberries, leafy herbs and liquid flower notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, lively, fresh, elegant blend that shines for its purity and sheer drinkability."

Tasting notes

Plush and round, with plum, blackberry and muddled strawberry intertwined with dark spice, dried mesquite and caramelized sugar. With some air, sweet fruit and exotic spices combined with black pepper are released. The palate has volume and texture with silky tannins and complex dark fruits. Irresistible to drink now, this wine still has weight to gain. Drink now to 2025.

Production notes

Other notes

Drinkability:  Now-2025

“(fermented in concrete and stainless steel and aged in 51% new French oak): Very ripe aromas of plum and mocha suggest a sweet, fat wine. Nicely fine-grained and seductively complex on the palate, with its red berry flavors perfectly complemented and lifted by a lively floral element. Finishes fleshy and long, with refined tannins and lingering sweetness. A lovely claret-style wine at an affordable price--and there are 3,000 cases of this juice, which represents "the next 100 barrels after the winery's Reserve Claret, " according to winemaker Aryn Morell. (14.4% alcohol)” -90 points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

 

Brooding and sturdy of build, with deep blackberry, black olive and licorice flavors that build toward big but refined tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best from 2020 through 2024. 3,049 cases made.”-90 points, Tim Fish, Wine Spectator
