WINEMAKER NOTES
Clos Du Val, French for “small vineyard estate of a small valley,” was founded in 1972 in the renowned Stags Leap District. The winery was first recognized for its Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at the famed Judgment of Paris in 1976, establishing its place as one of Napa Valley’s most iconic winery estates. Still family-owned today, Clos Du Val farms 350 acres of estate vineyards in the Stags Leap District, Carneros and Yountville appellations and continues to craft wines of balance and complexity, showcasing the fruit from the outstanding terroir on which our estate lies.

Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cab Franc, 7% Merlot, & 3% Petit Verdot

Alcohol: 14.7%
92 POINTS - "Some meaty aromas across ripe blackcurrants, blueberries and gently tarry notes. The palate has a strong core of smoothly grippy tannins and abundant blackcurrants. Give this another year or two. Try from 2020." - James Suckling

91 POINTS - "Starting out with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot), it's a rocking Cabernet that should be snatched up by readers looking for a terrific value in Napa Cabernet at the 50 dollar price point. Blue fruits, sappy herbs, some damp earth, and a touch of mint all emerge from this charming, medium to full-bodied, fruit-loaded effort that delivers the goods." - Jeb Dunnuck

91 POINTS - "This is blended with 14% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, the whole given 20 months in a combination of French and Hungarian oak. It shows bright floral aromatics and bold flavors of blueberry, cinnamon and clove. The texture is soft and well integrated, with a light finish." - Wine Enthusiast

Socially Rated 4+ / 5 ⭐
A great vintage for Cabernet in Napa Valley, this 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of nutmeg and vanilla bean. The wine showcases complex fruit flavors of black cherry, plum, blueberry, and a hint of caramel apple. The rich and balanced mouthfeel finishes with a mocha flavor and velvety tannins.
