Matthews strives to produce wines that show the incredible diversity of Washington State. From our classic Cabernet Sauvignon driven reds, to our revered Sauvignon Blanc.
The Claret for Matthews has always filled the traditional role of a second selection wine in a winery with a flagship blend. Traditionally focused more on elegance than on structure, like the Red Wine. The Claret has always been a tremendous value for our customers. Showing clean ripe fruit and a much more modest oak program, the Matthews Claret leads a segment of value driven every day wines.
The wine aged in two year old neutral French oak barrels for nearly two years. Approachable and supple, and generous with aromas of ripe red and black fruits, this Claret contains 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot.
