A big dark wine the 2009 is one of the richest wines I have tasted from Clos du Val recently. An exciting melange of black fruit incense tobacco licorice and pencil shavings hits the palate with notable depth and sheer power. Darker fruit tons of melted road tar smoke and scorched earth add weight on the deep plush finish. The formidable Stags' Leap tannins are going to require patience. The 2009 is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029. 92+ -Antonio Galloni
