Tasting notes

"The 2020 Matthews Horse Heaven Hills Claret shows a deep ruby to dense purple color in the glass. Expressive aromas of cola, sandalwood, dried flowers, bramble fruit and blueberry fruit leather lead to flavors of candied hibiscus, cacao nib, wild mountain blueberry and toasty oak. Balanced acidity, body, and palate-coating fine-grained tannins on the finish, with fall spices and black fruits." - Bryan Otis, Proprietor

"The 2020 'Horse Heaven Hills Claret' combines 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc with small parts Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot.  Coming from the Wallula Gap and Champoux Vineyards, this comes off very soft and inviting on the mouth with juicy red fruits that mingle well with tobacco leaf, milk chocolate and sagebrush tones.  Mostly stored in stainless steel, this is very inviting to enjoy now and over the next decade." -93 points, Owen Bargreen
