A label showing a Ron Kauk climbing Heaven at Yosemite Valley, this wine, and many others from Clif Family Winery, pays tribute to the true adventurer.
Though "The Climber" blend changes each year, the 2011 blend of mountain fruit is out of this world. On sight the wine is dark purple and concentrated in the middle and fades to red on the edges. The aromas bound from the glass with black fruits, currants, dried herbs and tobacco leaf. The palate is balanced throughout with rustic flavors including wild blackberry, leather and dried rose petals. The tannins on the finish are soft and there is a minerality indicative of the volcanic soils from which the grapes were grown.
