95+ score and under $40

A 95 Point Cab for under $40!
Another blast from the past, hot on the heels of the release of the great 2012 Freemark Abbey Cabernet come what may be the best deal in Napa Valley Cabernet ever! Turns out they do make them like they used to, and price them that way too. The 2013 Clos du Val is an amazing wine don't hesitate to buy this one by the case.

2013 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon...$34.99
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking. Powerful and dense in the glass, with utterly mesmerizing balance, the 2013 hits all the right spots. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black cherries and incense form a tapestry of aromas and flavors that simply dazzles. The 2013 needs time in bottle for the tannins to soften, but it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013.
Rated 95+/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
