Newton Claret Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley California Wine 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Newton Claret Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley is made in a European style based on elegance, structure, and the potential to last and improve in the bottle. A sophisticated blend in the Bordeaux tradition with an unexpected addition of a small percentage of Syrah, this wine is all about balance and finesse. Pretty aromas of blueberry, black currant, and red cherry lead to a layered, medium-bodied palate of blackberries, cherries, and plum with a touch of brown spice. Supple tannins, a light touch of oak, and pleasant acidity harmoniously support the clean, bright fruit. This is a California Wine.

Bordeaux-style red, lighter and fruitier than i would prefer, but excellent roundness and clarity, especially for the price.
