93 Parker - fantastic gem A sexy, fantastic Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. White Rock Vineyards is a small Napa Valley winery that makes one of the best small-production Cabernet blends in Napa Valley. Highly recommended. Robert Parker: "The Claret Proprietary Red Wine, 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot has nice red and blackcurrant fruit, licorice and spice box in an elegant Bordeaux-like style. This is medium-bodied wine, can be drunk now or cellared for 10-12 years. It is also a very good value." The White Rock 2015 Claret Napa Valley is powerful & complex with deep black fruit flavors of blackberry, plum and blueberry, surrounded by White Rock's traditional cedar, spicy cherry and mineral character. A frame of sweet French oak and cabernet's thick rich tannins add backbone and lead the wine to an ageworthy, velvety finish.
OW styled to me, great restraint, savory and earthiness co-mingle with classic Napa fruit and ripe tannin.
