Winemaker Notes

Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon offers notes of chocolate, blackberry and fresh black pepper on the nose. The textures are silky, creating a vibrant wine with flavors of toffee, vanilla, blueberry and currant. The tannins are well integrated, creating a wine for which Clos Du Val is known; balanced, elegant, and classic.

James Suckling
A firm and beautiful red with black currant and berry character. Full-bodied, silky and refined. Shows real Napa Valley cabernet character. Drink or hold.

Easily the best Cabernet Sauvignon deal from the Napa Valley, the classic 2012 Clos du Val defines the genre. Ripe fruit, with a slight shading of sweet oak; neatly textured on the palate; just a bit youthful, but no problem when served with grilled beef. Yes, I really like this one because it is exactly what I was expecting. (Tasted: March 27, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Clos Du Val, California
Clos Du Val Clos Du Val Vineyard Winery Image

Clos Du Val, French for “small vineyard estate of a small valley,” was founded in 1972, an era that wine writer Hugh Johnson referred to as “the turning point in modern wine history.” Two years before, the Goelet family tasked talented French-born winemaker Bernard Portet with finding vineyard land, anywhere in the world, capable of producing a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.

Clos Du Val’s legendary debut Cabernet Sauvignon was one of only six California Cabernets selected for the famous 1976 Judgment of Paris Tasting, where California defeated some of Bordeaux’s finest wines. Ten years later, Clos Du Val’s reputation for creating some of Napa Valley's most gracefully age-worthy wines was solidified, when its 1972 Cabernet Sauvignon took first place in the Judgment of Paris rematch.

Still family-owned today, Clos Du Val farms 350 acres of estate vineyards in the Stags Leap District, Carneros and Yountville appellations and continues to craft wines of balance and complexity, showcasing the fruit from the outstanding terroir on which the estate lies.
