    2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Hirondelle Vineyard, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley

    “Deep, inky and enveloping, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Estate Vineyard captures all the elements that make Stags Leaps Cabernets so compelling. A host of lavender, mint, sage, graphite and crème de cassis notes flesh out in an effortless, noble Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with notable depth and intensity.”

    2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

    "Clos Du Val's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is intense, powerful and yet medium in body, as wines from this vintage tend to be... This is an impressive, classically proportioned Stags Leap Cabernet endowed with lovely precision and brightness."

    2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District

    “Unctuous red with blueberry, blackberry and hints of vanilla on the nose and palate. Full body, very fine tannins and a fresh, clean and beautiful finish. Better in 2018 but already a joy to taste.”

    2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

    “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is striking. Powerful and dense in the glass, with utterly mesmerizing balance, the 2013 hits all the right spots. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black cherries and incense form a tapestry of aromas and flavors that simply dazzles. The 2013 needs time in bottle for the tannins to soften, but it is a real head-turner. The combination of intense tannin and opulent fruit is classic 2013. Drink 2019 – 2033.”

    2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District

    “Clos du Val’s 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty wine with lovely balance and an understated personality to match. Plums, black cherries, tobacco, cedar, flowers and mint are laced into the silky, expressive finish. Overall this is an attractive, mid-weight Cabernet built on a classic sense of structure. It should drink well for the next decade or more.”

    2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District

    “Dense 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.”

    "Herbal, tobacco aromas then an opulent, sleek and limpid palate that has a light touch with good acidity to refresh. Not profound but well made."

    “Cool graphite and blueberry nose – impressive and site-specific. Succulent – an opulent style, with concentration and weight. Fine-grained tannins and sufficient acidity achieve a good balance. Drink 2017-2030.”
