Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: 96 Points
“A selection of the best barrels results in the wine called Clew. This is a big, powerful wine, particularly the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Clew, which comes from Coombsville. One hundred-seventy cases were made of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in 100% French oak, this is no wimpy wine at 15.5% alcohol. It is super-concentrated, with a stunning nose of graphite, licorice and forest floor followed by off-the-charts richness, a skyscraper-like texture, and massive blueberry and blackberry fruit in addition to some loamy soil undertones. This stunner is still incredibly youthful and primary but promises to evolve and be drinkable in 5-7 years and last three decades or more.”
Clew: a ball of thread, yarn, or cord.
In Greek Mythology, Ariadne is the immortal wife of Dionysus, the ancient Greek god of wine, winemaking, grape cultivation and fertility. She was also the daughter of King Minos, and one version indicates that she helped Theseus slay the Minotaur and survive the Labyrinth. She gave him the clew, or ball of thread, that kept him from getting lost in the Minotaur’s maze.
