Winemaker's Notes:

This 2004 Pinot Noir displays a deep ruby color that is darker than most Pinot Noir. Aromas of dense black spices, dark black cherry and blackberry pervade, with a hint of vanillin incorporated in the nose. Our Pinot Noir displays flavors of intense dark fruit, black spice and well integrated oak. It is a rich, complex wine balanced with good acidity and a lovely, long finish. This Pinot Noir typifies the Carneros region and our trademark style of elegance, complexity and balance.

About Clos du Val:

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.
