Clos du Val Pinot Noir Napa Valley 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Clos Du Val’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the ultimate expression of our classically structured, elegant and age-worthy style of winemaking. With its dense black color, this wine has aromas of black fruit, cassis and dried herbs, mixed with hints of toasted coffee. The rich, powerful entry leads to intense flavors of blueberry and black fruit, integrated with some toasty oak and roasted coffee notes. The wine continues to develop through the very long finish. This wine will age well for 10-15 years. APPELLATION: Napa Valley COMPOSITION: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc FERMENTATION: 35 days in stainless steel tanks AGING: 20 months in French oak barrels, 75% new ACID: 6.3 g/L pH: 3.54 ALCOHOL: 13.5% RESIDUAL SUGAR: dry SOIL TYPE: clay loams with gravel

Clos Du Val:
From France to California In 1970, American businessman John Goelet sent off French-born winemaker Bernard Portet on a mission to find new territory to grow world-class wines. In 1972, they co-founded Clos Du Val in the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley. The name means "small estate of a small valley".

From France to California In 1970, American businessman John Goelet sent off French-born winemaker Bernard Portet on a mission to find new territory to grow world-class wines. In 1972, they co-founded Clos Du Val in the Stags Leap district of Napa Valley. The name means "small estate of a small valley". The estate is situated amongst 150-acres of vines beneath the famous palisades of Stags Leap, known for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. In 1973, Clos Du Val became one of the first wineries to stake a claim on the finest hillside terroir in Carneros, now recognized for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and today farms 180 acres for its estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Clos Du Val's old-world approach to winemaking combined with extraordinary Napa Valley fruit established Clos Du Val's tradition of classic estate wines with balance, elegance, complexity and longevity. Bernard's inagural 1972 vintage was one of only six California Cabernets selected for the legendary Judgement of Paris tasting. The same vintage took first place in a rematch ten years later, proving that Clos Du Val wines stand the test of time. Today, winemaker John Clews runs day-to-day winery and vineyards operations, working closely with vineyard manager Al Wagner to farm the land gently and sustainably. Once the grapes are harvested, John and Bernard make blending decisions together to produce a renowned portfolio of wines which are truly expressive of the terroir from which they came. Read less

This wine has the aromas of black cherry and plum with a hint of spice and coffee. It's most definitely full bodied with the right amount of acidity. If you find this wine, open it right now.
