2009 Vintage Accolades & Reviews
92+ - Wine Advocate Magazine
"Readers will have to be exceedingly patient with the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags’ Leap District). A big, dark wine, the 2009 is one of the richest wines I have tasted from Clos du Val recently. An exciting melange of black fruit, incense, tobacco, licorice and pencil shavings hits the palate with notable depth and sheer power. Darker fruit, tons of melted road tar, smoke and scorched earth add weight on the deep, plush finish. The formidable Stags’ Leap tannins are going to require patience. The 2009 is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029."

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
The 2009 vintage was a great success for Clos du Val, and now they’ve released this fabulous wine, whose production was 3,000 cases. It’s an absolute classic, a gorgeous example of Stags Leap, with lush blueberry, black currant, violet and mineral flavors, hard tannins and perfect acidity. You can begin drinking it in 2017, but it should really hit its stride in the 2020s.

2008 Vintage Accolades And reviews
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine
Made in the classic Clos du Val style, this Cabernet is less ripe, drier and more acidic than many of its Napa Valley neighbors. It’s also very tannic. Currently, it’s an aloof, austere wine, but it has a deep core of blackberries. This wants at least eight years in a proper cellar, and should age well for another decade beyond that
