Clos du Val – Pinot Noir Estate 2015 – Carneros, Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic and a bit tight. It reveals notes of cherry, ripe redcurrant and slight notes of plum combined with touches of wood, tobacco and soil. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a slight suavity, a slight acidity (in the background), a slight freshness as well as a beautiful, slightly unctuous and suave matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy red cherry, fleshy / crushed redcurrants and plum associated with touches of wood, wild blueberry, touches of tobacco as well as slight touches of soil, sweet spices and subtle touches of mocha on the finish / persistence. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length.
