    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Flagship Cabernet Sauvignon hails from our renowned Stags Leap District vineyard, best known for elegant and opulent wines. Deep garnet in color this wine is aged in French oak for 24 months. The wine is full bodied and accented with complex flavors of black fruit, chocolate, and dried herbs. The 2008 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits extraordinary complexity and balance, bolstered by fully integrated, silky tannins. Enjoy now or cellar for at least 10+ years.

    Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    This captures the sumptuous layer cake of tannins that SLD cabernet can give. The fruit is pomegranate-black, the wine spicy and as fat as a duck, the seared breast of which would make a fine complement. Clos de Val's cabernets tend to age well, and this bold, rich vintage will likely follow suit.
