Red Label Claret 2008
This wine is a dark garnet color with lovely ripe aromas of cherry, black plum and blackberry with subtle hints of dusty spice. The same aromas carry over to the palate, which leads with red fruit flavors later revealing clove and brown spices on the finish. The creamy mid-palate of this well-balanced wine makes it an appealing choice on its own or with a meal.
the vintage in my cellar is 2007
Med to Full, rich lush tannins compliment in your face mountain fruit to create a Bordeaux blend ready to stand next to the best.....who knew all this for $17.00. Let her open up she is a bit young!

External Reviews for Red Label Claret
Bright red-ruby. Enticing aromas of redcurrant, licorice, iron, loam, tobacco and chocolate. Suave, round and nicely concentrated, with a restrained sweetness to the red fruit, herb and spice flavors. In a polite, very easy-to-drink style and not at all over the top. Finishes with a broad, spicy dusting of tannins and a suggestion of coffee liqueur.
This wine is a dark garnet color wit lovely ripe aromas of black cherry, black plum and blackberry with subtle hints of dusty spice. The same aromas carry over to the palate, which leads with red fruit flavors, later revealing clove and brown spices on the finish. This wine compliments grilled meat dishes and also proves versatile with a wide variety of foods, from hearty pasta dishes to braised beef.
Distinctive for its elegant and layered structure, offering aromas of red currant and fresh cedar and complex flavors of plum, cigar box and brown spice. Tannins build on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2018.
