Clos du Val - Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Inky hue with a high extract and stain. Very ripe fruit, mix of dark and red, but nearly jammy in terms of profile. Dark fruit has a somewhat stewed component to it, letting on fig. Menthol. Cigar and pencil box kind of notes. Barrel notes are quite punchy, tropical nut notes come through. Quite balanced overall on the palate but there’s still this kick of spiciness from the alcohol. Medium finish.
