Searching for value in Napa Valley is not an easy thing to do, but we send our team of expert buyers several times a year to undercover hidden gems. One of these standouts is the Clos de Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Sauvignon became Napa's star during the 1976 Judgment of Paris, when Stags Leap took first place over the French First Growth Bordeaux's Mouton-Rothschild and Haut Brion. The staggering impact of the "win" was reinforced ten years later when the same wines were tasted a second time. The winner was another Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon: 1972 Clos Du Val. The Clos de Napa is the best kept secret in Napa, and we cannot reveal the winemaker or winery behind it. However, we can tell you this is essentially the entry level Cabernet Sauvignon for an Napa Icon, whose current release is selling for $250 a bottle. Don't miss this remarkable find from Napa Valley!
"Easygoing and approachable, the rich fruit is showcased in the 2020 vintage with aromas of ripe black cherry, and strawberry cream. Lively and rich on the palate with soft tannins and toasted oak, this style Napa Cabernet can easily go for $50+. Top Value." The Wine Buyer, 95 Points
