Clarissa Vin Rouge 2009

There is aromatic purity and depth here, expressive of our estate fruit which in this case is Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with just a touch of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

On the palate the wine has rich substance and while rather soft and caressing, it shows wonderful character, freshness and acidity. It has a very bright finish, and great length.

Originally designed by Bill to drink without food this wine nevertheless is excellent paired with simple, direct foods such as hamburger, steak, dense white fish and white meats, like chicken or pork.
