Clos du Val – Petit Verdot 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers juiciness and a fine intensity. It reveals notes of cassis, iris and small notes of crunchy red berries associated with fine touches of spices, chocolate and very discreet hints of nutmeg. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy acidulous frame, a good definition, gourmandize as well as a good structure. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe/juicy cassis, ripe blackberry and small notes of raspberry associated with fine touches of violet, cornflower/iris, cherry, sweet spices and chocolate. Good length. Tannins are elegant and structuring.
