Constant Diamond Mountain Vineyards Claret 2007

The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Claret possesses a sweet, fat component that provides flesh and succulence to the wine's tannic structure. Black raspberry, black currant, crushed rock, and spring flower-like characteristics emerge from this pure, textured beauty.
 
The 2007 Claret possesses a Bordeaux-like structure despite being made from 100% Merlot. Juicy black currant notes intermixed with hints of earth, tobacco leaf and white chocolate emerge from this medium to full-bodied, tannic, impressive wine. I suspect lovers of Bordeaux will appreciate it more than those looking for fruit-forward California Merlots. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 12-15 years.
