CELLAR SELECTION Made in the classic Clos du Val style, this Cabernet is less ripe, drier and more acidic than many of its Napa Valley neighbors. It’s also very tannic. Currently, it’s an aloof, austere wine, but it has a deep core of blackberries. This wants at least eight years in a proper cellar, and should age well for another decade beyond that.
Very much in keeping with Clos du Val's typically underplayed style, this nervy young middleweight eschews high ripeness and keys instead on subtle, cherry-like fruit. It is helped along by pleasant accents of sweet oak and quiet whispers of loamy spice, and, if never a full-throated version of Cabernet, it is balanced and secure in what it is.
