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.
93 points Robert Parker: "The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Claret is a blend of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. This has always been their flagship wine. This is the most fruit-forward, delicious, sexy wine in the portfolio, with soft tannins, loads of raspberry, blueberry and blackcurrant fruit, licorice and forest floor in a medium to full-bodied, silky smooth style. This is sexy, yet at the same time complex juice. Drink it over the next 12-15 years."
The White Rock 2012 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.
Tired of Oak-bomb Chardonnays? The new White Rock 2014 Chardonnay is a beautiful balance of California fruit and earthy minerality. One of our favorite boutique Napa wineries we think you should discover now.
White Rock Vinyards Charodnnay has flavors of meyer lemon, linden flower, honey, hazelnut and an undercurrent of toasty oak in the nose. In the mouth this wine delivers what the aroma promises: a rich mouthful of lemon cream pie and hazelnut crust, with lime, pineapple and mineral flavors that linger on the palate. Seamless and refreshing."
Estate grown and bottled.
A fantastic Cabernet from the Stag's Leap District. White Rock Vineyards is a small Napa Valley winery that makes one of the best small-production Cabernets in Napa Valley.
The White Rock Vineyards 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits powerful, dark fruit aromas and a rich, broad mouth-feel. Ripe blackberry and currant are complemented by undertones of cedar, coffee and vanilla bean. Notes of chocolate and a hint of licorice linger through a finish of lush tannins and dark plum. Only several hundred cases produced.
