Good morning, y’all! I have heard through the grapevine (no pun intended) that some were sad that I missed two weeks of our Wine Wednesday series. I am thrilled that it is getting such a great response! I missed one week because I was under the weather and last week was our Wedding focused week. Fear not, we are back with another great wine for you to try.
The Claret (KLARR-ət) wine is classified as a Bordeaux that originally received its name from the French word “clairet,” meaning pale. Over time, the Claret has grown darker in color. The bottle I sampled was from Becker Vineyards right here in Texas. I thought it was a very delicious red wine that smelled of oak, berries, and obtained a slightly floral fragrance. The taste was a little spicy with a smooth finish. If you like a Cabernet Sauvignon then you would like this wine. I would definitely keep a few bottles of Claret in your cellar because it is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Do you love visiting wineries? Becker Vineyards is a really fun winery to visit if you are in the Fredericksburg area. Also, Becker has their own lavender fields! I am always interested in new wine tours. Do you know of any wineries that you would recommend?
