The Cliff Lede Claret 2013 is a charming combination of fruit flavors, married together by 18 months of aging in French oak barrels. Aromas of black fig, chocolate covered cherries, and silky cassis greet the taster on the nose and are chased by rich flavors on the palate. Expect to taste dark fruits and spice, with an almost tropical vanilla essence. In spite of these rich flavors, this wine is calm enough to pair with many different foods. Try serving a bottle of Cliff Lede Claret with shepherd’s pie for a classic rustic meal.
