Made exclusively using 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from our Hirondelle Estate Vineyard, this exceptional wine displays nuanced complexity. To capture the graceful essence of our estate vineyard, this wine was aged in the finest French oak barrels (60% new). Enticing aromas of clove, blueberry pie and just a hint of menthol lead way to complex red fruit flavors with bright acidity. The Clos Du Val Hirondelle Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon showcases toasted oak and fine tannins with a long, lingering finish.

The Clos Du Val Hirondelle Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon is from the famed Stags Leap District in Napa. This wine is the direct descendant of the Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon 72 that went head to head with top French Bordeaux including Chateau Mouton-Rothschild and Chateau Haut-Brion in “The Judgement of Paris” blind tasting in 1976. Expect aromas of ripe black and purple fruit, black pepper and subtle hints of toast. The flavours are evocative of black forest fruits, dark chocolate shavings, plum and toffee. This wine can be cellared for 10+ years or enjoyed now with decanting.
