The 2016 Clarendelle is composed of 84% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up youthful notions of fresh red and black plums, mulberries and baking spices plus wafts of stewed tea and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, refreshing and vibrant in the mouth, the palate has a pleasant chewiness to the texture and finishes with an herbal lift.

91 pts James Suckling

Only ripe, blueberry and blackberry flavors with nice freshness and some healthy, supple tannins within the sleek frame, make this an immediately appealing red Bordeaux that’s very food-friendly. Drink or hold.

Vinous

The 2016 Clarendelle Bordeaux has an attractive strawberry preserve bouquet. The palate is soft on the entry, with rustic tannin, and a little coarse in the mouth, leading to a sharp, quite citric finish. Drink over the next couple of years.
