Clos du Val Hirondelle Vineyard Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 750ML

Winemaker Notes

Sourced from the four best blocks of our Hirondelle Estate Vineyard, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon opens with deep blackcurrant and cherry aromas. Rich flavors of blueberry, clove, espresso, and fresh cream are followed by a long, velvety finish.

Beginning two to three weeks early, the 2016 growing season progressed perfectly through the ripening process. Cooling patterns throughout the season lengthened harvest, allowing the fruit to reach optimal ripeness with the last blocks arriving at the winery in mid October.

Critical Acclaim

96 Points/Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Vineyard is all Cabernet from a vineyard in the Stags Leap region. Its inky purple color is followed by a seriously good bouquet of blackcurrants, black raspberries, crushed rocks, spice, and cedarwood. It's rich, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and deep, yet is still slightly tight and closed on the palate. Give this beauty 3-4 years of bottle age and it will keep for two decades or more. It's a brilliant bottle of Cabernet

96 Points/Wine Enthusiast
This rich red opens with dark chocolate and blueberry flavors that envelope the supple, lengthy tannins. Cedar, dried herb, black pepper and clove accent the dense fruit, finishing long and expressive. *Cellar Selection

95 Points/Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Vineyard needs a little coaxing to reveal layers of very pretty black and red currants, black cherries and wild blueberries scents with underlying hints of new leather, dried mint, aniseed and fenugreek plus a waft of black olives. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a lot of character, harmony and depth, with the savory-accented black fruits superbly framed by ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long and refreshing.

94 Points/James Suckling
This has an ultra-concentrated, seamless and plush feel with impressive detail and drive through the palate. Aromas and flavors are in the plum, dark-cherry and blackcurrant zone. This is super plush and suave. Long aging potential. Drink or hold.
