2006 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District
- Napa Valley
- Stags Leap District
Community Tasting Notes 26
December 18, 2015 - A very nice Cab showing good balance, a mix of red and black currants, dark cherry, menthol, and classic SL chocolate; drink now or hold in the cellar for 5 years.

October 8, 2015 - Dark red color is still youthful looking. With 9 years under the belt, nose is so complex with smoke, dark cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with dark earth, forest undergrowth, and mushrooms. True to this label's heritage, it's not a typical broad-shouldered Napa fruit bomb. Suave acidity accompanied beautiful red/blue fruits hits palate with authority while keeping lightness. This is so very Bordeaux, perhaps a good Fronsac. Finish somewhat short. Very pleasant food wine.
