Donald Collection Wines
Luke Donald’s real wine education started on the greens during college, where he shared a golf coach with Bill Terlato. The grapes used in crafting Luke Donald Claret are 100% Napa Valley fruit, sourced primarily from renowned vineyards in the Rutherford and Stags Leap District appellations, known for consistently delivering wines of exceptional quality year after year.
In a hat tip to his parents, Luke Donald offers a Bordeaux-style red blend that carries the classic British description claret.
Luke Donald Claret 2010
Handcrafted in a traditional European style, Luke Donald Claret marries a rich blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Luke Donald Claret has its origins in a longstanding friendship between top-ranked pro golfer, Luke Donald, and fine wine professional, Bill Terlato, of the family-owned Terlato Wine Group. Whether on the golf course or in the vineyard, both men share a similar passion for excellence. Luke Donald Claret displays structured tannins, intertwined with vibrant flavors of black berries and subtle spice notes, producing a wine ripe with flavor and supple texture. "A Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend named after the pro golfer, this new bottling is dry, well-structured in tannins and earthy. It shows flavors of freshly crushed blackberries, anise, cedar and tobacco, with a sprinkling of cocoa dust. Should develop well over the next 6 years. — S.H. (11/1/2008)"- Rated 87, Wine Enthusiast.
