Clos du Val – Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 – Napa Valley

Clos du Val – Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 – Napa Valley

(82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc) The nose is fine, fruity, elegant, powerful and complex. It reveals notes of ripe fruit (blackberry, cassis) and slight notes of toasted oak associated with small earthy notes, slight notes of vanilla and a touch of mocha. The palate is fruity, elegant, fat, suave, powerful, gourmand, ample and creamy. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of strawberry and cassis associated with touches of blueberry, a few woody notes, sweet spices, as well as very fine notes of raspberry, black pepper and mocha in the background. Tannins are fine, elegant and supple. Good length. Beautiful almost infinite persistence.
