Vivid ruby. Expressive aromas of dark berry preserves, candied flowers, pipe tobacco and white pepper. Fleshy and open-knit, offering sweet blackcurrant and cherry compote flavors lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity. Supple tannins build slowly on the finish, which repeats the berry and tobacco notes.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni
The 2012 Claret is a fabulous wine for the money. Bright red fruit, iron, smoke, spices and dried flowers lift from the glass in a vibrant, perfumed Cabernet Sauvignon-based red long on personality. Expressive floral and spice notes add lift on the finish. The style is a bit lighter than is typically found in the Ramey Cabernets, which also contributes to the wine's early accessibility.

Wine Advocate
Ramey has always done a good job with Cabernet Sauvignon. He produces 6,000 cases of his Claret, a lighter-styled, immediately drinkable red wine. The 2012 Claret is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and the rest Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dark ruby hue is accompanied by notes of cedarwood, roasted herbs, and red and blackcurrants in a flavorful, medium-bodied, elegant, surprisingly Bordeaux-like style. This supple red is ideal for drinking now and over the next 7-8 years.

Winemakerís Notes
This soft, easy-drinking Cabernet is a good introduction to the vintage, and while it will improve over the course of three to eight years, it is not a wine intended for long-term cellaring.

Blend:
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot,
2% Malbec, 2% Syrah,
1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.
