Clos du Val 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Winner of a Decanter World Wine Award
For almost four decades Clos du Val has been producing distinctive Napa Valley Cabernets from their estate vineyards in the Stag's Leap District and beyond. French Winemaker Bernard Portet secured prime vineyard property back in the early 70's which have been the basis for the legacy this winery holds today. This 2010 is yet another classically expressive wine crafted by today' s winemakers, John Clews and Kristy Melton (Melton was selected by Wine Enthusiast Magazine as one of the wine world's 40 Under 40 rising stars!). It's a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot, the wine was aged 18 months in French oak barrels and shows the house style of sheer seamless elegance.

    Comments about Clos du Val 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley:

    As many have noted, the 2010 vintage is going to be a tough one for Napa Cabs. But you wouldn't know it from the 10 Clos Du Val. The cassis, black cherry and plum fruit are all well developed and any "green" comes across as adding elegance and grace. It's round yet firm on the palate and finishes off dry with hints of milk chocolate layered over the fruit. Drinking well now, but this one can age for years to come.

      Did not care for the taste and a very thin wine.
      Should have expected it based on less expensive price.
