Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2001


Founded in 1972 by John and Henrietta Goelet, Clos Du Val played a key role in launching the Californian wine revolution. A competitor in the famed 1976 Judgment of Paris blind tasting, where the best of California went up against the best of France, the estate has always focused on producing wines inspired by the great domaines of Burgundy and Bordeaux. In fact, it was a Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon that took the crown in the Judgment of Paris rematch in 1986. Based in the world famous Stag’s Leap District in the Napa Valley, the winery is today led by winemaker Ted Henry.

In the words of the winemaker – “2001 marked Clos Du Val’s 30th Harvest at Clos Du Val and one of the earliest in the winery’s history due to an unusually warm May and June. July was much cooler than normal, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly and reach full maturity with longer hang-time than was originally expected. We started picking our grapes on August 14 and completed harvest on September 28… This incredibly rich and intense Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a deep red color with a purple-hued undertone. Layers of fruit, wood and spice create a complex nose that releases aromas of fleshy cherries, bay leaf, coffee and hazelnut. It is a fullbodied wine with an explosive entry and a kiss of chocolate. Smooth and seamlessly integrated, the wine leaves a lingering finish and a lasting impression.”
