WE 92 WA (90-92) AG (89-91) Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Editor's Choice! - "Having spent only 12 months in barrel, this vintage of the producer’s Claret is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon with 34% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Syrah, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It opens in exotic floral and spice, with a juicy midpalate around soft, rounded tannins and smoothly integrated oak. It provides extraordinary value for the quality."
According to Robert Parker - "The 2012 Claret appears to be another outstanding example of value-priced Cabernet Sauvignon. A 6,000-case blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and the rest Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, consumers will love this beauty because of its forward, classic Cabernet style. It should drink well for 5-8 years."
According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2012 Claret looks like another delicious, mid-priced wine from David Ramey. Dark, round and seductive, the rich, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon-based Claret has more than enough depth to drink well for at least a handful of years. I tasted the 2012 from tank just before its bottling." 14.5% ABV.
