2015 Hirdondelle Cabernet Franc

by: Robert Parker

"The 2015 Cabernet Franc Hirdondelle Estate looks to be sensational, and possibly the finest wine Clos du Val has ever made. A beautiful nose of forest floor, white flowers, black raspberry and blueberries soars from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine."

2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

by: Antonio Galloni

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Clos du Val. Dark, inky and voluptuous in the glass, but with plenty of structural underpinning, the 2015 is super-expressive today."

2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

by: Lisa Perrotti-Brown

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon—a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc—features notions of cassis, black cherries and plums with hints of damp earth and cigar box. Medium to full-bodied, it has appealing vibrancy and freshness in the mouth, with a chewy frame and good length."

2016 Estate Pinot Noir Rose

by: Virginie Boone

"Dark pinkish-red, this wine comes from two blocks of the producer's Carneros estate, which are harvested at lower sugar ripeness to offer a dry refreshing experience, which this wine does. This exudes weighty and broad flavors of tangy watermelon, orange and cranberry, with a satisfying grip of power on the finish."

2016 Gran Val Chardonnay

by: Lisa Perrotti-Brown

"A barrel sample, the 2016 Chardonnay Gran Val Vineyard is a little cedar-forward at the moment, giving way to a fragrant core of ripe apricots, honeydew melon and orange blossoms with hints of toasted almonds and brioche. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely oiliness to the texture, it delivers mouth-filling stone fruit and melon flavors with a lively backbone and great length."

2014 Three Graces

by: Virginie Boone

"A spectacular capturing of an estate-grown site, this substantial age-worthy red is floral and intriguing in flavors of pencil, leather satchel, cedar and dried herb, even a touch of soy burrowing within. A touch of reduction makes it compelling to think about aging."

2015 Estate Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley

by: Virginie Boone

"New management, farming and winemaking practices at this producer, including a focus on smaller production, are remarkably on display in this delicious white. Golden pear and crunchy apple provide an unctuous, delightfully balanced experience that's crisp in underlying acidity and subtle baking spice."

by: Antonio Galloni

"Deep, inky and enveloping, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Estate Vineyard captures all the elements that make Stags Leaps Cabernets so compelling.

2016 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley

by: Virginie Boone

"Citrus-driven, this wine is made from the producer's State Lane Vineyard in Yountville, and is beautifully aromatic in honeysuckle and hibiscus. Medium bodied and balanced in style, it's dry and bristling in acidity, the flavors sharply defined in grapefruit and tangerine."

2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Hirondelle Vineyard, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley

by: Virginie Boone

"Rounded and approachable, this estate-driven wine is 100% varietal and dusty on the palate in tight-grained oak and tannin. The flavors are richly rewarding, etched in chocolate-covered raspberry, clove and an herbal undercurrent that's hard to pin down."

2015 Estate Pinot Noir, Gran Val Vineyard, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley

by: Virginie Boone

"Made in a full-bodied and fleshy style, this comes from an estate vineyard long owned by the producer. Cloudy, with a distinct fresh cherry aroma, it opens with leathery tannins and pronounced oak notes before its bright, citrus-like acidity settles in."

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

by: Antonio Galloni

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking. Powerful and dense in the glass, with utterly mesmerizing balance, the 2013 hits all the right spots. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black cherries and incense form a tapestry of aromas and flavors that simply dazzles. The 2013 needs time in bottle for the tannins to soften, but it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013. Drink 2019 – 2033."

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District

"Clos du Val's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty wine with lovely balance and an understated personality to match. Plums, black cherries, tobacco, cedar, flowers and mint are laced into the silky, expressive finish. Overall this is an attractive, mid-weight Cabernet built on a classic sense of structure. It should drink well for the next decade or more."

"Dense and briary, with black and red plum notes complemented by a strong sense of clove, this wine is cushioned in tar, oak and cigar box, showing nicely resolved tannins. Blended with 16% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, it is enjoyable now and will cellar well for many years to come."

Henry says producing a great merlot is a matter of growing conditions, as well as a respect for the grape's potential. The various merlots produced by Clos Du Val illustrate that Henry knows of what he speaks."
