Clos du Val 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon | Alc: 14.1% – Big and Bold
Napa Valley, California
This wine delivers everything one is looking for from a great vintage. The color is an inky purple hue and the wine has aromas of black fruits, baking spices, dark chocolate and leather. The palate is rich and complex, full of flavors of berry pie, mocha, cedar, black pepper and vanilla toast. The texture is creamy, round and full with structured tannins that are approachable now or will cellar well for decades.
“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking. Powerful and dense in the glass, with utterly mesmerizing balance, the 2013 hits all the right spots. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black cherries and incense form a tapestry of aromas and flavors that simply dazzles. The 2013 needs time in bottle for the tannins to soften, but it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013.” 95+ Pts – Vinous
“A silky and tight red with tile, berry and dusty aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Refined and racy. Drink or hold.” 92 Pts – James Suckling
