Ludwigs Fine Wine
Clos du Val Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750 ML
Tasting Notes: Red Wine. 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot. The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of nutmeg and vanilla bean. The wine showcases complex fruit flavors of black cherry, plum, blueberry, and a hint of caramel apple. The rich and balanced mouthfeel finishes with a mocha flavor and velvety tannins.
Some meaty aromas across ripe blackcurrants, blueberries, and gently tarry notes. The palate has a strong core of smoothly grippy tannins and abundant blackcurrants. Give this another year or two. Try from 2020. ~92 James Suckling
Starting out with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot), it's a rocking Cabernet that should be snatched up by readers looking for a terrific value in Napa Cabernet at the 50 dollar price point. Blue fruits, sappy herbs, some damp earth, and a touch of mint all emerge from this charming, medium to full-bodied, fruit-loaded effort that delivers the goods. ~92 Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has turned out beautifully. Fresh, vibrant, and full of energy, the 2016 shows the contemporary Clos du Val style at its best. Inky blue/purplish berry fruit, lavender, spice new leather, and menthol add shades of nuance to this super-attractive, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon from Clos du Val. Once again, Clos du Val's Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is one of the very finest wines readers will find in this price range. ~91 Antonio Galloni
This is blended with 14% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot, the whole given 20 months in a combination of French and Hungarian oak. It shows bright floral aromatics and bold flavors of blueberry, cinnamon, and clove. The texture is soft and well-integrated, with a light finish. ~90 Wine Enthusiast
