The 2010 Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon wine has is smooth, rich and generous. A Stags Leap District wine that offers multiple layers of the well-known Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove. This Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon wine has classic aromas of raspberries and cherries, dried black figs, hints of oak and minerals and fresh cinnamon leaves create an expectation of flavors. On the palate this wine is big in every way. Sweet black cherries, chocolate, clean earth, hints of bay leaves and a balanced lingering finish reminds us of what we mean when we say Napa Valley Cabernet.
From 100% estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown in the heart of the Stags Leap District. The aging in 100% French, 60% new, for 18 months only enhances this balanced wine.
