Château Clarke – 2012 – Decanter – 90 Points
Blackberries are the dominant fruit along with hints of crab apple and cinnamon spice. This has a more gourmet overtone than the 2011, and is a little richer overall in terms of structure and weight. Still ready to drink now, with the lovely hints of smoked oak that were found in the 2009. A good choice for opening now.
