Le Clairet Cabernet Sauvignon '17

One of our favorite import companies, Selection Massale previously sold a wine called "Le Clairet" from one of their growers in France. That grower decided not to make the wine any more, but Selection Massale couldn't let the label fade away into obscurity. Instead, they called their friend, and fantastic winemaker, Chris Brockway of Broc Cellars, and asked him to make a wine to bottle under the label.  The spirit of the label spoke to a fun red, a bistro-styled wine. One that was fresh, fun, and easy to drink.  Brockway knew just what to do. He worked with some vineyards in the North Bay Area of San Francisco, called Solano Valley. This cool area produced the predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with a touch of Mourvèdre, that found its way into the Le Clairet bottling. It is vinified in a combination of large, neautral barriques and tank.  The tank vinification of Cabernet really captures the purity of the grape, which almost always undergoes oak vinification.  It leaves us with a wine that has fresh tones of red berries and such a light, vibrant texture.  We recommend putting a slight chill on this and enjoying it on a warmer day, in lieu of normally reaching for that white or rosé.  Worth buying by the case!
