Clos du Val Palisade Vineyard Zinfandel 1999
(search item no. 39238)

PRICE ON 10/1/2014: $28.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby in color with hints of purple, our Zinfandel was created exclusively from our own Palisade Vineyard, located in the Stags Leap District. Loaded with white and black pepper aromas, and well-structured with great acidity and rich, jammy fruit and spice, this wine is well-anchored in the mid-palate with fresh flavors lasting throughout.

Alcohol: 14.5% by volume

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.
