Clos Du Val's flagship estate wine, the 2007 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet in color with complex aromas of ripe black fruit, cocoa, vanilla and a hint of dried herbs. The wine has a rich, entry, and concentrated mid-palate, filling the mouth with black fruit, spice and a hint of cocoa on the finish. With its velvety-smooth tannins and elegant structure, this Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic expression of Stags Leap District terroir. The finish is long and lingering. Enjoy now or cellar for at least 10+ years.
"One thing you can depend on concerning Clos du Val’s Cabernets is that they’re elegant. The winery resolutely refuses to kowtow to the modern style of ultraripe, extracted fruit, high alcohol and massive oak. This lovely Cab, which contains a drop of Merlot, defines their style, and is a joy to drink. It has rich, complex cherry and blackberry flavors, flecked with earth and herbs, and is just beginning a long journey. Now–2021, at least.
