Clos du Val Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
|Appellation||Stags Leap District|
|Brand||Clos du Val|
Wine EnthusiastDense and briary, with black and red plum notes complemented by a strong sense of clove, this wine is cushioned in tar, oak and cigar box, showing nicely resolved tannins. Blended with 16% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, it is enjoyable now and will cellar well for many years to come.
Wine SpectatorDisjointed, with ripe Cabernet aromas and raw, edgy tannins, ending with a tangy, dry edge. Drink now. 4,200 cases made.
