2016 Clos du Val "Hirondelle Vineyard" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1449468 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Vineyard is all Cabernet from a vineyard in the Stags Leap region. Its inky purple color is followed by a seriously good bouquet of blackcurrants, black raspberries, crushed rocks, spice, and cedarwood. It's rich, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and deep, yet is still slightly tight and closed on the palate. Give this beauty 3-4 years of bottle age and it will keep for two decades or more. It's a brilliant bottle of Cabernet. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This rich red opens with dark chocolate and blueberry flavors that envelope the supple, lengthy tannins. Cedar, dried herb, black pepper and clove accent the dense fruit, finishing long and expressive. *Cellar Selection* (VB) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Vineyard needs a little coaxing to reveal layers of very pretty black and red currants, black cherries and wild blueberries scents with underlying hints of new leather, dried mint, aniseed and fenugreek plus a waft of black olives. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a lot of character, harmony and depth, with the savory-accented black fruits superbly framed by ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long and refreshing. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Estate Vineyard is fabulous. Black cherry, bittersweet chocolate, new leather, spice, tobacco and menthol flesh out in an unctuous, medium to full-bodied Cabernet full of personality. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has an ultra-concentrated, seamless and plush feel with impressive detail and drive through the palate. Aromas and flavors are in the plum, dark-cherry and blackcurrant zone. This is super plush and suave. Long aging potential. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2018)
