Lots of people say Mexican food doesn’t go with wine. Fooey! Clos Du Val’s release party on Saturday night followed a glorious  Mexican theme. And between the latin jazz band and the mariachi dudes, you can bet those mouth-watering veggie empanadas, chicken tamales and pepper-laced fish tacos were heavenly with the 02 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. The goat cheese quesadillas and sweet corn salad were even better with the 04 Reserve Chardonnay, nutty, not buttery. The runaway hit was the 02 Reserve Pinot Noir (their first reserve pinot). Everyone was talking about it. So classy yet powerful, almost like a diet Cabernet. The 92 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District and the 96 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, were also phenomenal. Check out www.closduval.com for more info.
