Plush and rich and very good at what it does. Oak doesn't swamp it but it very much there!

Hell yes! Big oak and a dried fruit quality. Green out of the bottle with the eucalyptus settling down after some air. 3 of 4 blind tasters guessed Italian.

Excellent wine. I have tasted just as good at a lower price and hence my rating is sub 9 (a 9 for taste and a minus 0.1 for price)

Clos Du Val is a good representation of a solid Napa cab and the 2009 is just that, good but not great.

Would be perfect with meat. A bit overvalued at $40

Amazing! Big bold cab, stronger tannins, mid acid. Let it breathe for 15 minutes and it will blow your mind.
