2010 has been like a good suspense novel; luring you in slowly and then waking you up with surprise, intrigue and a great cast of characters. Of course Mother Nature always has the lead roll, but when you learn to dance with her the results are amazing!
It is that dance that sets Clark-Claudon apart. Rather than try to control or manipulate what the terrior and season give us it is the balance & joy of the dance that shows in our wines from vintage to vintage. This is the true art of winemaking.
Our 2010’s from the Wild Iris Sauvignon Blanc to the Estate Cab are already showing tremendous promise. As I taste through the lots I know 2010 will not just be good, but rather a great vintage for Clark-Claudon.
