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.
