Deep ruby color and very sweet, spicy aromas of blackberry, plum, and cassis hint of oak. Elegant and smooth with a surprisingly powerful finish. Ripe, complex and fleshy with excellent depth.
(From 2010 Vintage) A fresh take on Clos Du Val's world-class style, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon continues the winery's tradition of producing truly distinctive wines of balance and elegance while adding a hint of modernity. Its opulent, brooding purple hue is accentuated with aromas of ripe black and red fruit, black pepper and subtle hints of toast. The palate displays a seamless integration of rich flavors which include chocolate, toffee and ripe blackberry. The wine has a rich, full mouth feel marked by focused, silky tannins and a long, lingering finish.
