Donati Claret 2016
James Suckling: "This well-structured but sleek Bordeaux blend from the Central Coast is brimming with sour-cherry and blackberry aromas. The gentle tannins are already well integrated and this has a very food-friendly balance. With a little more concentration, it would rate even higher. Drink or hold." May 2019
Winery: "Aromas of cherry cola, boysenberry, and chocolate-dipped blueberry. The palate is well balanced, medium-bodied with well-integrated tannins. There are notes of blackberry, mocha and boysenberry on the palate. The finish has lingering notes of mocha and graphite as well as candied cherry."
