Clos du Val Stags Leap District Cabernet 2006

87++ points

Napa Valley, California, USA. 13.5%

There is some confectionary new oak on the nose that calms down with some breathing – highly recommended for this young wine.

Thankfully not a steroid enhanced Cal Cabernet but it’s also not fresh and expeessive – yet. I really feel this needs time to open up. Promising wine.

Great label.
