The Legacy Of Dad’s Wine (WBW#48)

Belatedly, Randy and Kaz examine the winery and wine that Randy first remembered seeing his parents lay down in the hall closet all those many years ago. Following Lenn Thompson‘s fourth anniversary Wine Blogging Wednesday theme of “Back To Your Roots“, Randy and Kaz have a look at the Clos Du Val 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Their opinions are high at first taste, but after the usual 20-minute break, watch out!

Mix in the usual Kaz and Randy shuck-and-jive, and you have yourself a good time!

    Have you joined The 89 Project (http://89project.blogspot.com) yet? The '05 Clos du Val got an 89 from Wine Enthusiast. I hope you will join the Project and cross-post this.

    The 89 Project looks interesting. I'd be interested to know more about that.
