    A fresh take on Clos Du Val’s world-class style, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon continues the winery’s tradition of producing truly distinctive wines of balance and elegance while adding a hint of modernity. Its opulent, brooding purple hue is accentuated with aromas of ripe black and red fruit, black pepper and subtle hints of toast. The palate displays a seamless integration of rich flavors which include chocolate, toffee and ripe blackberry. The wine has a rich, full mouthfeel marked by focused, silky tannins and a long, lingering finish. Expect this Cabernet Sauvignon to age gracefully for an additional 5-10 years. - Winery

    A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is nearly the same in style as this cuvee tasted in the early to mid-1970s. The color is a dark ruby/purple and the bouquet is, typically, reserved and repressed. The wine possesses good fruit as well as medium body, but it is foursquare, straightforward and simple. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. - Robert Parker 86 Points
