Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Clos du Val|
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. The 2013 needs time in bottle for the tannins to soften, but it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013. Rating: 95+
There's a distinct freshness to this wine. Stainless-steel fermented and aged, it's high in acidity with enough spirit to feel almost effervescent. Lightly textured tastes range from pineapple to papaya, a squeeze of Lemonheads candy on the long finish.
