VINTAGE: 2014 WINERY:Clos du val
COUNTRY: United States REGION: Napa
VARIETAL:Cabernet sauvignon & blends
The Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of chocolate, blackberry and fresh black peppers on the nose. The textures are far silkier than recent vintages, creating a vibrant wine with flavors of toffee, vanilla, blueberry and currant. The tannins are well integrated, creating a wine for which Clos Du Val is known; balanced, elegant, and classic.
Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted on the premise of balance, elegance and class that pay homage to its founder John Goelet’s French roots. In a land of big juicy Parkerised cabernets hitting 16% alcohol, the Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon comes in at a modest 14%. Yet, this wine packs in the most attractive aromatic notes of chocolate and fresh black pepper, and a bold palate full of toffee, vanilla and dark fruits typically associated with fuller bodied wines. The wine finishes off beautifully with well integrated and silky tannins. This is definitely one Napa cabernet anyone with an interest in the region should try.
