"This inaugural release of the Rocky Knoll 2005 Claret is dark, polished, focused and complex, serving up tiers of intense and concentrated flavors of ripe plums, black cherry, boysenberry and cassis that fan out evenly on the palate.

"This 'estate vineyard' Claret is a classy blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 38% Merlot that is plush and supple with enticing hints of fresh earth, cedar oak and mocha that gains richness and depth on the long, velvety finish."
— Michael Donovan, Managing Director, RoxyAnn Winery
