Clos du Val Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Clos du Val|
Another classic wine from this fine Napa producer, and one that will live for a long time in your cellar. It is young and tight now, but through the tannins and acids the palate detects gobs of lush, ripe blackcurrants and plums, herbs and tobacco. The tannins are a wonder-rich, thick and intricate, and fully ripe. As good as it is now, this lovely wine will get better through 2009.
Elegant and restrained, this complex, well-crafted wine offers hints of green olive, cedar, currant and black cherry, supported by firm tannins. The long, elegant aftertaste is enlivened by acidity. Drink now through 2010.
