Clos Du Val
2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
Today’s Clos Du Val 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is offered to you with our boldest recommendation!
An absolutely delicious wine, packed with concentrated dark fruit, mushroomy earth, and subtle hints of lavender, our tasting panel flipped for this Cab.
Coming from a 99 Point vintage, at over 30% off, with a very limited availability, this gem WILL_ sell out - so please don’t wait to get yours!
Nearly opaque crimson in the center of the glass, with only a hint of a lighter ruby ring around the edge.
Deep aromas of black fruit, highlighted by blackberry and sweet plum, layered overtop hints of mushroomy earth, sandalwood, violet, and black peppercorn.
Lush and robust on the palate, with concentrated stewed dark fruit flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, and black currant mingling with sweet tobacco leaf, espresso bean, dark chocolate, sage, and pomegranate black tea.
Smooth and supple on the finish, with very well integrated, velvety tannins and lingering flavors of dark fruit.
A perfectly grilled New York Strip, served with a sage and balsamic reduction drizzled overtop.
What the Winery Says
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. Expect this Cabernet Sauvignon to age gracefully for an additional 5-10 years.
