Crafted with longevity in mind and meticulously stored, our Library Releases are a peek into the history of Clos du Val and the land we’ve cared for since 1972. Each wine on this page has been selected for its exemplary display of maturity and is ready to be enjoyed.
It is normal for natural cork to weaken over time; for wines that are 10 or more years old, we recommend using an Ah-So cork puller. For a step-by-step guide on how to open aged wines, check out this video
93 Points – Wine Enthusiast
"A gorgeous example of Stags Leap, with lush blueberry, black currant, and violet flavors and perfect acidity. You can begin drinking it in 2017, but it should really hit its stride in the 2020s."
93-95 Points – Wine Advocate
“Full-bodied, rich, plush and compelling in its up-front generosity, it has a firm backbone of ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness. – Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Vibrant flavors of toffee, vanilla, blueberry and currant are followed by well-integrated tannins and a long, smooth finish.
