90 points "Here's one for the cellar. Still youthful, the wine brimes with fresh acids and dry tannins that leave behind an astringent finish. Clos du Val cabernets will age well over decades, and this one stays true to the winery's Medoc-oriented vision, marching to its own beat in an age of drink-me-now wines, stash until 2009 at least. CELLAR SELECTION."

"This wine consists of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Cabernet Franc, aged for 20 months in French oak. Aromas of spice and menthol nicely complement the ripe, dark flavors of blackberry and blueberry. This wine has an extremely elegant mouthfeel with subtle nuances of bright fruit and toasty oak, which lead to a dense, long finish. This wine shows the quality of the vintage beautifully and will stand up to many years in the cellar, developing an earthiness that is unmistakable in wines produced from the Stags Leap District."
