2006 Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon
|An elegant wine for $20, I thoroughly enjoyed this bottle, just as I have every Clos Du Val wine I’ve tried. I think this winery puts out excellent wines for the money, and this Cabernet further supports that belief. |
It’s a Bordeaux style blend that consists of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. It’s remarkably smooth throughout, with the 17 months of aging in French oak helping this one develop into a pleasant and balanced wine. Perfect with the steaks we grilled, and a good candidate for cellaring for a few more years, this is a great bottle that will earn my Silver Rating, and I’d definitely recommend checking it out at only $20 at Costco.
