92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is fabulous. Rich and sumptuous to the core, the 2021 will be a very easy wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. Succulent dark cherry/plum, spice, rose petal and mocha are all dialed up. Silky tannins wrap it all together in style. Drink: 2024-2036. (Dec 2023)"

91 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (The Wine Independent): "The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon, with 7% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot in the blend, is deep garnet-purple in color. Notes of freshly crushed blackcurrants, black raspberries, and red plums spring from the glass giving way to wafts of wild thyme, charcoal, and tree bark. The medium to full-bodied palate is lively and expressive, with red and black berry flavors accented with subtle herbal notes framed by approachable tannins, and finishing with impressive energy. Alcohol 14.5%. Drink: 2024-2040. (11/8/23)"

90 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Clos du Val's 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 1% each Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Hints of thyme and sage accent cassis and cherries on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is on the fresher, leaner side of that spectrum, framed by fine-grained tannins and finishing with a strong note of mocha. It's a solid, all-around effort at what is a realistic price for Napa Valley. Drink: 2023-2030. (3/29/24)"

Producer notes: "This fresh and vibrant Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is brimming with aromas of blackberry, mulberry, cassis, and violet. On the palate, bright flavors of cranberry, red plum, cherry, and lavender are intertwined with supple tannins, balanced acidity, and a long, smooth finish."
