2013 Stone House Vineyard Claros Norton Reserve Texas Hill Country
Stone House Vineyard produces Claros from a small, well-tended vineyard near Spicewood, Texas planted to the Norton grape variety, believed to be the oldest American grape cultivar in commercial production. Deep dark ruby red in color with aromas suggestive of bright crunchy berry fruits, cinnamon bark and a friable earth together with and an almost indescribable vinosity; medium to just full in body; cool and caressing with fine, supple, silken texture and crisp bright berryish flavors that well oblige another pull. Stone House Vineyards Claros is long a favorite of ours here in beautiful, downtown Austin, Texas, and seems now to be hitting its stride.
