*2011 Kokomo Claret
Kokomo Claret, Dry Creek Valley, USA 2011
This focused Bordeaux style blend is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Merlot. Our goal is to make the most balanced and complex example of what a Dry Creek Valley Bordeaux blend can be. We have found that by blending these varietals we can get a wine that together shows more distinction of terroir.
2011 was a very cool growing season with an abundance of natural acidity. This vintage will certainly be applauded by foodies due to the wines lower alcohols and intrinsic balance. The cool growing year pushed back harvest dates by at least 3 weeks and gave us beautiful flavors and plenty of hang-time.
