This luscious Zinfandel has a deep ruby red hue. Bramble and cranberry, with notes of spice, minerals, black pepper and cherry, married with subtle tobacco aromas. Ripe, red and black berry fruit dominate throughout the palate, with savoury notes and vanilla. A beautifully balanced wine with a silky mouthfeel and moderate tannins. A classic Zinfandel in the making.
Aged for 12 months in oak barrels.
Zinfandel 90%, Petite Sirah 10%
Stunning with red meat roasts and great for the 'posh BBQ'. Also good with crispy duck and food with hoisin sauce!
One of the earliest wineries in the now famous Stag’s Leap district of napa, California, Clos du Val was founded in 1972 by American businessman John Goelet and French-born winemaker Bernard Portet. Bernard’s father had been manager at Chateau Lafite, where he and his brother were raised.
