Clos du Val

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Yesterday fornthe 4th of July we opened the 2019 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon. From Napa, California Napa Valley.

On the nose there was black cherry, blackberry, plum sauce, black currant, spice, graphite and earth.

On the palate there is a lack cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, chocolate, spice, green bell pepper, toasty oak and earth.

This is a full bodied wine with a smooth mouthfeel medium + acidity and medium + grippy tannins that leaves you with a long dark fruit graphite finish. I hope everyone had a blessed 4th of July enjoying family and friends. Please have a wonderful week ahead and stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

delicious fruit but can’t say it’s a step up from Val Villaine. Needs time. 2008, V8. — 3 days ago

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2017

Right in the Chianti Classico sweet spot. Resolved tannin and acid support rich black and red fruit. Pruny, but still bright. Bone dry Amarena cherries, but no rs. Oak in balance. Expensive cigarettes. I wonder about this in 5, 10, 15 yrs… — 25 days ago

Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tried again! Blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay, medium lemon with aromas of white flesh fruit, citrus and floral blossoms. On the palate flavors of ripe apple and citrus with floral spice. Long finish, lively acidity, nice body and texture due to Chardonnay, ending with citrus and mineral notes. Very nice! — 22 days ago

Spuntali Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Nice Brunello but not really singing at this point in its evolution. Also bearing some characteristics of the ripe / hot year, though to be honest less than I feared. Opened in the morning and by dinner was drinking well, at least when paired with some nice prime burgers. — 17 days ago

Südtirol Vinschgau Val Venosta Riesling

Perhaps the best example of resiling I have ever had the opportunity to sample.

Dry, but lots of honey on the finish. Pear up front. One of my favorite whites
