Meet the producer

One of the earliest wineries in the now famous Stags Leap district, Clos du Val was founded in 1972 by American businessman...



This wine is made from a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot. The vines for this predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon blend are up to 29 years old and grow in gravelly clay loam. Fermented in stainless steel tanks with 2 pumpovers daily. The wine is aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels for 20 months, 65% of which is new oak.

Tasting notes

Classic Napa Cabernet. The colour is a deep garnet and the wine has aromas of black fruits, cedar wood, dark chocolate and leather. The palate is rich and complex with supple blackcurrant fruits and more complex characters of wood spice and graphite pencil. The texture is focused with well structured tannins and great acidity. A wine that drinks brilliantly now and will age well for the next decade.

Food match

Slam in the lamb! Alternatively stick with quality British beef or a host of other succulent meat roasts. Or approximately 2kg of cheese.
