PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEWS:
John and Henrietta Goelet founded Clos du Val in 1972. A descendant of Bordeaux's famed wine merchant, Barton & Guestier, John had a vision of producing cabernet sauvignon that would rival the world’s best. French-trained winemaker Bernard Portet was selected to head the search for the perfect property from which to produce these wines. In 1972, two years and five continents later, a parcel in what would become the Stags Leap District in the Napa Valley was chosen to fulfill this lofty dream.*

Clos du Val’s inaugural wine, the 1972 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon was part of the group that topped French wines in the legendary 1976 Judgment of Paris blind tasting. Ten years later, their cabernet took first place in the Judgment of Paris rematch.* Today, with vineyard holdings in Carneros as well as Stag’s Leap, Clos du Val continues to beguile wine lovers around the world with its award-winning Napa Valley cuvées.

Blended with merlot, petit verdot, and malbec; then aged for 19 months in a combination of 58% new French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels. 2018 was a mild year with average temperatures below normal, providing a warm and extended growing season without the heat spikes we have experienced in recent years. The fruit was able to naturally mature all the way to November in some blocks, resulting in rich and beautifully balanced wines.*

97 Points, Decanter:

"Polished aromas of lovely ripe dark fruit and chocolatey spicy oak, with floral and herbal notes. An expressive and fresh palate with purity of fruit, juicy tannins, and a solid length. Approachable now and will age well."

92 Points, James Suckling:

"Lots of dried blackcurrant, dark chocolate and walnut on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine tannins. Flavorful finish. Try from 2022."
