Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot

The 2004 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon greets the nose with robust aromas of black fruit, dried herbs, fennel and leather. Deep purple-black in color, this powerful, full bodied wine fills the mouth with the rich flavors of dark fruit. The wine is seamless, and the finish never seems to end.

Though it can be enjoyed now, the classic structure and excellent balance of this Cabernet Sauvignon means it will age beautifully for another 5-10 years, making it a wonderful addition to any cellar.

About Clos du Val Wine Co.:

Clos Du Val, French for "small vineyard estate of a small valley," was founded in 1972 in the now legendary Stags Leap District by Franco-American entrepreneur John Goelet. After a worldwide search to purchase vineyard properties from which to craft world-class wines, 150 acres in Stags Leap and 180 acres in Carneros were chosen, solidifying Clos Du Val's iconic stature and formidable place in Napa Valley history.

Today, for Clos Du Val Winemaker Kristy Melton, it is the bounty from these renowned vineyards that acts as the foundation for the distinctive, terroir-driven wines of balance and elegance for which Clos Du Val is known.
