Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$39.99

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking. Powerful and dense in the glass, with utterly mesmerizing balance, the 2013 hits all the right spots. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black cherries and incense form a tapestry of aromas and flavors that simply dazzles...it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Great aromatic display with dark cherries, plums, cassis, graphite, violets, smoke, incense, spices, subtle vanilla. Nice crunchy texture on the palate with sweet dark fruit flavors on entry, fresh midpalate with medium acidity, licorice, and dark chocolate notes. Long finish dominated by youthful tannins with baking spices, small hint of mint & herbs, and creamy vanilla.

Second of the blind reds for this quarter's S&E Wine Club. Theme was Chardonnays for white wine and red wines you can purchase at grocery stores. Dark ruby with a purplish hue. Sweet spices on the nose with some black fruits, yet restrained. Heavy tannins (7/10) and medium bodied. Lots of oak on the palate with light dark fruits. Dry and long finish. Drink till 2028. Definite potential but needs some more time to integrate and develop. (88+)

A brooding style, with serious fruit, concentration of fruit, tannins and acidity to age, but lacking freshness. Good buy.

Cedar, loam and dark fruit. Intense fruit in the mouth, it's medium bodied, with good acidity. This is a food friendly Napa Cab, which is more and more uncommon.

Imo this has a way to go - it came across as tart and quite young, a bit surprising to me but I’ve not had a lot of clos du Val.

It’s been a rough week and only Tuesday. I needed a comfort wine.
