Auclair Winery Right Blend

2017 Right Blend

We continued our love affair with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Their combination continues to be exceptional. The wine is dark and lush with the ripe fruit playing a leading role – a contribution from the Merlot – and spicy structure to frame that fruit provided by the Cabernet Franc. The nose starts warm and lush, and with air it shows dark cherry compote, plum, some wood spice, hints of pepper and it will evolve as you sit and enjoy it.
The palate starts dark with black cherry, plum, blackberry and blueberry. It evolves on your palate and shows lovely complexity and length. The finish will go on for some time and bring you back for more.

Auclair Winery Left Blend    2017 Left Blend

The Left Blend absolutely requires some air before drinking. Once open this wine has tremendous aromatic complexity that will immediately capture your attention. This is a wine of elegance rather that boldness. There is laser like focus on the fruit, framed by some lovely oak flavors that put the focus on the great fruit.

The nose shows fruit notes of red and blue fruit notes, hints of wood spice, and pepper. Layers of interest can be found if you just sit and sniff this wine.
The palate starts off smooth as silk with dark, full fruit notes, fine grained tannins, cassis, and a very long complex finish that will bring you back for more. The finish will go on for as long as you wish to contemplate it. It will draw you back for more almost immediately though. With air the wine will darken and gain complexity.

This wine shows its Red Mountain pedigree very clearly. It is capable of a decade or more of aging and will drink beautifully for quite a while.

Auclair Winery Sauvignon Blanc

2019 Sauvignon Blanc

The return of our Flagship white! 2019 was a picture perfect year for white wine on Red Mountain. The wine is crisp with lovely citrus notes, the Semillon gives it body and roundness while the Sauvignon Blanc provides the backbone and crisp finish. This wine pairs well with food and has become a favorite in our house.

Auclair Winery 96 Cedars White

2017 96 Cedars White

This is our first 100% Semillon and was 100% barrel fermented in used French oak barrels. The nose is filled with complex, full bodied notes of honeycomb, tropical fruit and floral honeysuckle notes. The palate is rich and has a beautiful rich mouth feel that rolls across the tongue with flavor and interest. The finish is long and lovely with a complexity and spice note that will draw you back for another sip.

Auclair Winery 96 Cedars Red

2017 96 Cedars Red

This is a preview of our 2017 wines. This wine is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

The nose starts out with rich dark fruit, a floral element and some nice interesting spice notes. Allowing this wine to open up (and it does need time!) will bring depth and structure to complement the rich, dark fruit. The palate is rich, and full with dark plum, rich cherry, blackberry liquor, vanilla, and spice all show up for your enjoyment. The finish is dark, smooth and very, very long.This wine is structured and can be laid down for some time or you can enjoy it young in its youthful fruit forward stage.

2016 HH Cab   2016 Auclair Heart of the Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

Heart of the Hill vineyard is starting to become well known and for good reason. Scott Williams of Kiona fame, farms this vineyard. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from this site benefit from the heat found at this elevation and the fact that the vineyard is literally in the “Heart of the Hill”.

One of the last of our releases from the 2016 vintage is a Cabernet Sauvignon from Heart of the Hill vineyard. We’ve enjoyed working with these grapes for some time now and the structure and age-ability of this wine really sets it apart. We gave this added bottle rest to settle down in the bottle but it still requires a nice decant or a long sleep in your cellar to show its best.

This is a lovely wine wine. The focus is on the dark fruit, firm tannins and good acidity this vintage all providing structure and flavor that will improve with age. This wine can be drunk early for it’s lovely fruit forward stage or laid down to evolve more fully and show some nice complexity. If you can’t keep your hands off it we advise a decant to allow the wine to open up and show at its best.
