Newton Claret 2009
This dark red cherry colored wine offers aromas of ripe red and black fruits and cinnamon layered with dark fruit flavors of cherry, plum and raspberry supported by vanilla and mocha spice. The dark fruit flavors carry through to the palate, combining with dark chocolate notes on the soft mid-palate. Dusty, fine-grained tannins make this wine an appealing choice now or over the next 5 years. Winemaker Chris Millard suggests this wine will complement grilled meat dishes nicely and also prove versatile with a wide variety of foods from hearty pasta dishes to braised beef.
