Clos du Val half bottles are back

More of these half bottles at an amazing price!!

2011 Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon...$11.99 / 375ml

Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $13.99
(everyone else on Wine-Searcher are priced $18-25)
Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2.5% Petit Verdot, 2.5% Petite Sirah
The cool vintage of 2011 allowed us a rather different approach in the vineyard than we normally get to have. Cool temperatures allowed a long hang time of fruit on the vine, contributing to ripe, yet elegant aromatics. It has notes of chocolate, blackberry and fresh black pepper on the nose. The textures are far silkier than recent vintages, creating a vibrant wine with flavors of toffee, vanilla, blueberry and currant. The tannins are well integrated, creating a wine for which Clos Du Val is known; balanced, elegant, and classic.
