Clos Du Val's flagship estate wine, the 2006 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet in color with vibrant aromas of ripe black fruit and a hint of dried herbs, mocha coffee and toast. The wine has a rich, powerful entry, and concentrated mid-palate, filling the mouth with intense black fruit and spice. 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 20+ years.
great wine with a holiday meal, which is what we had it with. This is a full, strong wine, but not overpowering.
Smooth & Supple
I served this at a friends' gathering and everyone was impressed enough to comment on the delightful wine
