A lovely Merlot, showing a French influence in its Bordeaux-like delicacy and earthiness. Feels elegant in the mouth, a supple, lightly oaked wine with layers of cherries, tobacco, cedar and sage. Good value. S.H. Also fairly priced, the 2006 Merlot is a blend of 77% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc. Its dark ruby color is accompanied by notes of mocha, cocoa, chocolate, berries, and a touch of herbs. Consume this medium-bodied Merlot over the next 7-10 years. ** SOLD OUT **
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. Dark ruby in color with a garnet center, this Merlot offers aromas of black fruit, black olives, dried herbs and cassis. This full bodied wine is packed with intense black fruit flavors, as well as notes of spice, forest floor and a hint of toast. The mouthfeel is rich, with a solid middle and a silky, lingering finish. Enjoy this Merlot with braised chicken, cold duck, roasted turkey, roasted beef, lamb, veal, liver, venison, meat casseroles.
