Bonny Doon a Proper Claret 2012
"Lean, neither overly alcoholic (weighing in at 13%), nor overly extracted; it is precisely as one would imagine A Proper Claret to be. The wine contains a substantial dollop of petit verdot (22%), which adds a silky note of violets and textural elegance, in precision counterpoint to the lead-in-the-pencil firmness offered by the inclusion of the manly tannat (8%). There is a lovely suggestion of cedar and mint, in the nose. The wine has medium tannins, nice acidity, and finishes cleanly." Winery
External Reviews for Bonny Doon a Proper Claret
This Cab is blended with Petit Verdot, Tannat, Syrah and Petite Sirah to produce a dry, interesting wine. It’s silky in texture with flavors of cola, sour cherry candy, prune, pomegranate and raspberry. Refreshingly moderate in alcohol, it has remarkable delicacy.
