93 Parker - fantastic gem
A sexy, fantastic Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. White Rock Vineyards is a small Napa Valley winery that makes one of the best small-production Cabernet blends in Napa Valley. Highly recommended.
Robert Parker: "The Claret Proprietary Red Wine, 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot has nice red and blackcurrant fruit, licorice and spice box in an elegant Bordeaux-like style. This is medium-bodied wine, can be drunk now or cellared for 10-12 years. It is also a very good value."
The White Rock 2016 Claret Napa Valley is powerful & complex with deep black fruit flavors of blackberry, plum and blueberry, surrounded by White Rock's traditional cedar, spicy cherry and mineral character. A frame of sweet French oak and cabernet's thick rich tannins add backbone and lead the wine to an ageworthy, velvety finish.
