Clos du Val, French for “small vineyard estate of a small
valley,” was founded in 1972 in the renowned Stags
Leap District. The winery was first recognized for its
Cabernet Sauvignon at the famed Judgment of Paris in
1976, establishing its place as one of Napa Valley’s most
iconic winery estates. Still family-owned today, Clos du
Val farms two estate vineyards in the Stags Leap District
and Yountville appellations and continues to craft wines
of balance and complexity, showcasing the fruit from the
outstanding terroir on which our estate lies.
Following heavy rainfall in the winter season, the 2019
harvest was mild with only a few heat spikes. Due to
these ideal weather conditions, the wine’s flavor was able
to develop on the vine for an extended period of time,
resulting in powerful and impeccably balanced wines.
Enticing aromas of blackberry, plum, and raspberry leap
from the glass with underlying notes of caramel, dark
chocolate, and rose petal. Fresh and vibrant flavors of
cherry, pomegranate, nutmeg, and vanilla are seamlessly
integrated with bright acidity, polished tannins, and a
long, velvety finish.
