Food Pairings for Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
One of my go-to Napa Cabs, especially because it is actually a Bordeaux style blend that is Cab dominant. It has a reddish-purple color that has aromas of heavy dark fruit along with hints of oak and spice. The palate is extremely complex with intense flavors of dark cherries, toffee, cocoa - these flavors are powerful yet very soft and refined tannins remain as finish your glass. Enjoy with a steak or ,hell, by itself.
External Reviews for Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Made in the classic Clos du Val style, this Cabernet is less ripe, drier and more acidic than many of its Napa Valley neighbors. It's also very tannic. Currently, it's an aloof, austere wine, but it has a deep core of blackberries. This wants at least eight years in a proper cellar, and should age well for another decade beyond that. - S.H. Our Flagship Cabernet Sauvignon hails from our renowned Stags Leap District vineyard, best known for elegant and opulent wines. Deep garnet in color this wine is aged in French oak for 24 months. The wine is full bodied and accented with complex flavors of black fruit, chocolate, and dried herbs. The 2008 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits extraordinary complexity and balance, bolstered by fully integrated, silky tannins. Enjoy now or cellar for at least 10+ years. - WineryAPPELLATION: Stags Leap DistrictCOMPOSITION:94% Cabernet Sauvignon6% MerlotFERMENTATION: 30-40 days with skin contactAGING: 24 months in French oak ...
This intense, complex Cabernet Sauvignon depicts a black color in the core of the glass, as well as layers of purple hues toward the perimeter. The nose exudes aromas of rich black currant fruit, followed by a hint of toast. Flavors of black fruit dominate the palate and lead to a full-bodied, powerful wine that is well-centered and leaves an exceptionally long finish. True to Clos Du Vals winemaking style, this classic Cabernet Sauvignon yearns to be enjoyed with a filet mignon of equal quality.
