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.

Characteristic of Clos Du Val's world-class style, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon continues the winery's tradition of producing truly elegant wines of balance and complexity. Its opulent, brooding purple hue is accentuated with aromas of ripe black and purple fruit, black pepper and subtle hints of toast. The palate displays a seamless integration of intense flavors that include chocolate, toffee and blackberry. The wine has a rich yet powerful mouthfeel marked by focused, silky tannins and a long, lingering finish. Expect this Cabernet Sauvignon to age gracefully for an additional 5-10 years. - WineryAPPELLATION: Napa ValleyCOMPOSITION: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon7% Merlot6% Cabernet Franc3% Petit VerdotFERMENTATION: Traditional stainless steel tanks with 2 pumpovers dailyAGING: 18 months in French oak barrels, 25% new barrelsACID: 5.9 g/L pH: 3.65ALCOHOL: 13.5%SOIL TYPE: gravelly clay loamsAGE OF VINES: 10-27 yearsHARVESTED: September 14 - October 16, 2008BOTTLING: July 2010PR...

Winemaker's Notes:

This Pinot Noir displays a deep ruby color that is darker than most Pinot Noir. Aromas of dense black spices, dark black cherry and blackberry pervade, with a hint of vanillin incorporated in the nose. Our Pinot Noir displays flavors of intense dark fruit, black spice and well integrated oak. It is a rich, complex wine balanced with good acidity and a lovely, long finish. This Pinot Noir typifies the Carneros region and our trademark style of elegance, complexity and balance.
