This was maybe Clos Du Val’s very first attempt at Three Graces that since then has become one of their flagship wines. Been in the cellar since November 2012 when I got this for a little over 50 bucks, which was a big splurge at that time! :) For this vintage...lots of red and black fruits and very obvious new American oak with vanilla and dill on the finish! Not overly complex, but well integrated with balanced acidity, tannins and alcohol. Easy and enjoyable to drink!

Good fruity flavor. Touch of bite to it.

Only 12% merlot but it seems much higher. Needed an hour to really open up

Smooth but kind of meh - muted dusty nose that doesn't really open up. Generically fruity and oaky, weak tannic structure, and kind of flabby acidity. Disappointing from the producer.

Wow - lighter than expected, hints of raspberry. Really nice.

Pretty classic Bordeaux blend, nice dark colour. Quite bold with both slight fruit and slight pepper. A tiny bit harsh, not too heavy on tannins.
