Staglin Family Vineyard 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

Staglin Family Vineyard 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon

Fragrant dark red and black fruits set the stage for the exotic interplay of aromatic woods, bow rosin and sharpened graphite. On the palate, a medley of black raspberry, blackcurrant and cranberry fill a warm graham cracker crust drizzled with nearly-molten brown sugar and flecked with dark chocolate. Like a chiseled and sinuous boxer sitting in his corner, the youthful and deep Staglin Cabernet is a wine of controlled power, poised while waiting to showcase its long, silky and fine-grained structure. Your patience will be immensely rewarded.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 97 Points: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate bursts out of the glass with beautiful black cherry compote, warm cassis and freshly crushed blackberries scents plus touches of chargrill, violets, dark chocolate and pencil shavings and a waft of English lavender. Full-bodied, the palate features great intensity combined with fantastic freshness, textured by soft, finely grained tannins and lifted by the most gorgeous floral perfume, finishing long and layered. Beautiful wine."

Jeb Dunnuck - 97 Points: "I continue to simply love the 2016s, which come close to rivaling the 2013s, albeit with a more elegant character. Another pure class release from this great estate, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend that includes small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, all aged 20 months in mostly new French oak. Its deep purple/plum color is followed by classic Rutherford notes of blackcurrants, cedar pencil, chocolaty herbs, licorice, and hints of truffle. It's beautifully balanced, full-bodied, and seamless on the palate, and while it's less overt and sexy than the 2015, it shows the class, balance, purity, and length that makes 2016 such a special vintage. It offers pleasure today and will offer pleasure in another 20-25 years."

James Suckling - 96 Points: "The blueberry, currant and balsamic character is very attractive and fascinating. Tobacco, fresh bark and mushrooms, too. Full to medium body, creamy texture and lovely richness and brightness. Tangy and fine-tannined. Juicy finish. Drinkable now, but better after 2020."

Wine Spectator - 93 Points: "Warm and alluring in feel, featuring creamy yet structured layers of crushed red currant, plum and raspberry fruit. Long, with threads of leather, cedar, savory and warm tobacco filling in throughout. A very steady Cabernet that should age well."

Decanter - 93 Points: "Very toasty nose, luxurious oak that cossets the black fruits. Opulent and very concentrated, weighty and almost massive yet doesn't seem too heavy or extracted. Finishes sweet and rich. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040."
