2018 Clay Court

With heaps of bright red raspberry and ripe cherry, this wine’s freshness extends to a juicy palate. Sappy and bright, the red fruit sings alongside fine-grained tannins, iron, five-spice and rosemary.

“Deep ruby color, silky texture, lush and tangy black cherry and spice with hints of toasted oak and vanilla, balanced and long.”

Anthony Dias Blue (March, 2020)

“A complex bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, exotic spices, cola and succulent herbs, and a hint of smokiness builds in the glass. Densely packed yet lively, offering intense black raspberry, boysenberry, candied rose and cola flavors that turn sweeter through the midpalate. Finishes very long and smooth, with sneaky tannins framing lingering dark berry preserve and floral pastille notes.”

“The Clay Court features a mix of Pommard and Dijon clones, with the anticipated flavors of ripe cherries. Barrel aging has pumped up aromas of toasted walnuts and a whiff of burnt popcorn. The lovely fruit, with a nice tangy edge, is the star here, and sails smoothly through a well-balanced finish.”
