The Clos du Val Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Napa valley deep ink coloured wine with a purplish hue. The concentrated nose has a balanced blend of dark fruits, bell pepper and toasty oak. Flavours of blackberries and blackcurrant lead to an expansive mid-palate, with a lovely integration of acid and wood complimenting the fruit. The velvety tannins and great length demonstrate why the classics are always in style. American wine
Tasting notes, The Wine Advocate 89 points
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is blended of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11.5% Cabernet Franc, 8.5% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. It's deep purple-black in color and comes bounding out of the glass with vibrant black cherries, blackcurrants and warm plums scents followed by hints of tobacco, charcuterie, tapenade and lavender. Medium-bodied with a good intensity of uncomplicated black fruits, it has a chewy backbone and succulent finish.
Classic Napa Cabernet. The colour is a deep garnet and the wine has aromas of black fruits, cedar wood, dark chocolate and leather. The palate is rich and complex with supple blackcurrant fruits and more complex characters of wood spice and graphite pencil. The texture is focused with well structured tannins and great acidity. A wine that drinks brilliantly now and will age well for the next decade.
Food match, slam in the lamb. Alternatively stick with quality British beef or a host of other succulent meat roasts. Or approximately 2kg of cheese.
