- Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #31113 (In Stock)
Bob Stack is best known as an importer of fine value wines from around the world (his Chapoutier Bila-Haut wines have been favorites for years). He named his California negotiant venture Clos Robert to clearly indicate his preference for French-styled Cabs, and that’s what he delivers here. And, in California's great 2013 vintage, this is the best release ever here and tastes far more expensive than it is.
It's full of lush raspberry, cassis, and black plum fruit with just the right accent of Bordeaux-like fresh herb. Full-bodied and nicely ripe, the touches of oak spice and bitter chocolate add more complexity. The chunky texture and soft "chew" on the finish mean this will handle a steak easily - but there's no reason not to drink this all by itself. Hands down, the best value we've seen in California over the past few years.
