Food Pairings for Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Reserve
One of the earliest wineries in the now famous Stag’s Leap district, Clos du Val was founded in 1972 by American businessman John Goelet and French-born winemaker Bernard Portet. Bernard’s father had been manager at Chateau Lafite, where he and his brother Dominique (ex Taltarni) were raised. Clos du Val began life as 150 acres of vineyards on some of the finest land in the Stag’s Leap district.The winemaking team now led by John Clewes are building further on an already outstanding reputation, utilising the very best Napa fruit to produce handcrafted, estate wines famed for their balance, elegance and complexity.With fruit from the Stags Leap District, this Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is dark garnet in color with a purple core. Aromas are complex, offering notes of black fruit, cassis and spice. In the mouth, the wine is full bodied, intense and layered with flavors of black currant, mocha, herbs and a touch of vanilla. The finish lingers on and on.
