Clos du Val Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2016
JS92: Some meaty aromas across ripe blackcurrants, blueberries and gently tarry notes. The palate has a strong core of smoothly grippy tannins and abundant blackcurrants.
VM91: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has turned out beautifully. Fresh, vibrant and full of energy, the 2016 shows the contemporary Clos du Val style at its best. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender, spice new leather and menthol add shades of nuance to this super-attractive, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon from Clos du Val. Once again, Clos du Val's Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is one of the very finest wines readers will find in this price range.
