Clos Du Val Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon
Cracka Value Rating
This is the top shelf wine for Clos Du Val out of the famous Stags Leap region. It's well priced, too, 'cos usually you have to pay hundreds of $$$ for wines out of this region. Seductive aromas of cassis, plums, smokiness and mocha float out of the glass, along with sniffs of dried herbs and toast. The palate is more medium-bodied (13.5% alcohol) and elegant, with a good hit of vanillian oak, rich, dark fruit flavours, tight, fine tannins, and a long, lingering, choc-coated plum finish. This will kick on for a couple of decades! So give it plenty of air before serving with a few slices of beef.
