A fresh take on Clos Du Val's world-class style, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon continues the winery's tradition of producing truly distinctive wines of balance and elegance while adding a hint of modernity. Its opulent, brooding purple hue is accentuated with aromas of ripe black and red fruit, black pepper and subtle hints of toast. The palate displays a seamless integration of rich flavors which include chocolate, toffee and ripe blackberry. The wine has
a rich, full mouthfeel marked by focused, silky tannins and a long, lingering finish.
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
Boo ya. Fantastic Cab from Napa. Very balanced wine not too fruity as I think most Cal Cabs can get. Nice floral and spice notes on the nose and a long finish with enough complexity to stay interesting.
