Ramey Claret Napa California 2008
The perfect holiday wine! It has a musty, herbal, sagebrush filled nose. Woody. Inviting. It's pure, rich, structured and exhibits pure flavors of dark plum, currant, tobacco and sage with some cedar and other spices, like mulled holiday spices. Hints of clove. Very herbal and woody all in the best way. It's truly a wine built for the December holidays. Very nice!
What a fantastic Bordeaux blend with flavors of black currant, tobacco, and spice intermixed with chocolate and sweet cedar on a long.........finish! I can't believe the listed selling prices vary between $20-$23. In Jersey we pay anywhere from $29.99-$34.00 a bottle; and it's worth every penny! This is a notch above other clarets...had an 07 & 08. Great Claret!
