Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon—a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc—features notions of cassis, black cherries and plums with hints of damp earth and cigar box. Medium to full-bodied, it has appealing vibrancy and freshness in the mouth, with a chewy frame and good length.
While the story of Clos Du Val is rich in history, and follows the rise of Napa Valley as one of the world’s preeminent winegrowing regions, it is also a living story that is still being written. In recent years, guided by Winemaker Kristy Melton and President and CEO Steve Tamburelli, Clos Du Val has experienced a renaissance in every facet of the winery. This period of revitalization started when Kristy was named senior winemaker in 2012, and began leading a vibrant and vineyard-driven stylistic shift for Clos Du Val’s wines. It continued in the 2014 vintage, when Clos Du Val began focusing almost exclusively on making estate-grown wines, with an emphasis on the exceptional Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignons that first catapulted Clos Du Val to fame.
