Characteristic of Clos Du Val's world-class Cabernet Sauvignon since 1972, this latest vintage
continues the winery's tradition of balanced, complex and elegant wines. Deep garnet-black
in color, the 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of black fruit, complex spices,
and hints of toast. Rich and intense flavors of black fruit, and wood spices fill the mouth.
The wine has a powerful, solid middle palate and lingering finish. Expect this Cabernet
Sauvignon to age gracefully for an additional 5-10 years.
"A bit burly in tannins, with a dry, sandpapery mouthfeel. But that doesn't stop the blackberry, black cherry and currant fruit from shining through, or put a damper on the sweet, toasty oak notes. Doesn't feel like an ager, so the tannins are here to stay, but a good steak will wrestle them into submission."
