IWC 91+ - Produced from a challenging and cool season, the Walter Clore 2011 is firm and balanced. Mostly Merlot, with Cab and Cab Franc, plums and chocolate end with tight tannins and oak.


IWC 91+ Pts - According to Stephen Tanzer - "Bright medium red-ruby. Tight nose hints at currant, plum, licorice and sexy oak. Firmly built and intense, conveying excellent energy to the dark berry, violet and bitter chocolate flavors. Nicely integrated oak. The longest and firmest of these 2011 releases from Columbia Crest, finishing with harmonious noble tannins and excellent grip and length. Still a baby and structured to evolve gracefully in bottle."

According to Wine Spectator - "Chewy tannins surround a ripe core of blackberry and licorice flavors, persisting impressively as the finish expands, hinting at coffee and chocolate. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2016."

According to Wine Enthusiast - "The blend here is two-thirds Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc. Tight and toasty, it carries a hint of green tannins that show up in an astringent, lightly chalky finish. The fruit is sharp and herbal, with a suggestion of heat." 68% Merlot, 20% Cabernet, 12% Cabernet Franc. 14.5% ABV.
