Tonight’s blog was fueled by a delightful glass of 2005 Robert Karl Claret from Washington State. This lovely blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot was featured at a recent wine tasting at Seasons Wine Bar in Eagle. It was my serious duty to sample this wine several times to assure that is was as wonderful as I thought. Yup, it sure was. I brought a few bottles home to enjoy on special occasions – such as if I can go a week without a speeding ticket. The wine was $21.59 a bottle – and well worth the price.
