2012 All-In Claret
%price_bottle% / Bottle
The 2012 All In Claret is one of my favorites in recent years. The vintage brought about dark aromas and flavors of blackberry and cherry paired with anise and a bit of thyme. The barrel aging softened the tannins and created a plush texture while adding notes of a sweet oak toast and nice hints of vanilla. The wine can be enjoyed now, but will age gracefully over the next 8-10 years.
This is a great wine to pair with a beautifully seared Filet Mignon. This tender cut will balance the wines soft tannins and will combine for a wonderful evening.
