Everyday Wine in the City - Clos Du Val 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Clos Du Val - Cabernet Sauvignon 2006Mijo and I are back to our normal routine after our Thailand and Philippine vacation and after the Christmas Holiday. We also thought of starting the New Year with a good wine so we decided to open one of the wines we store in our mini cellar downstairs.

We opened a wine that we bought during one of our regular trips to Napa - Clos Du Val 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon.  Que rico!

We opened the wine on the first Friday of 2013 and paired it with cold cuts, cherry tomatoes, and soft cheeses. And then we drank the remaining wine the following Wednesday evening and paired it with grilled chicken from our friendly neighborhood Canyon Market.
