This is the winery’s flagship wine, the one that made it famous decades ago. It hasn’t changed much over the years. It’s still tannic and austere in youth, requiring many years to develop. But it’s a cellar guarantee, with a wealth of concentrated cassis and cedar flavors that are just waiting for those tannins to drop out.

This blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot spent 17 months in French oak, of which 50% was new. It possesses a deep ruby/purple color, attractive black currant fruit intermixed with notions of espresso and spice, more texture and richness than I found in the past, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. An impressive Clos du Val, it should age nicely for 10–15 more years.

Herbal aromas. Reserved cassis fruit. Layered but not overpowering. Structured. Plump, super-concentrated fruit. Spicy and vigorous. Has plenty of drive. Not subtle but impressive . Good length.

Longtime producer Clos Du Val’s wines were up and down a few years back, but if the 2004 Stags Leap district Cabernet, which it released this year, is any indication of what’s ahead, wine buyers should definitely take note. Graceful and lightly minty, with red cherry fruit, it’s a lovely Stags Leap AVA red.
