Stagland's 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon is at least excellent, possibly outstanding. This dark ruby/purple-colored, medium-bodied, finesse-styled Cabernet appears reticent and extremely tight and backward, but with airing it reveals a subtle yet attractive nose of cedar, spice, herbs, and cassis, excellent richness, an impressive sense of balance, and a beautifully knit, stylish finish. In a blind tasting, I would easily mistake it for a Left Bank Bordeaux. Give it 2-3 more years of cellaring and drink it over the subsequent 12-15.

Tightly wound, a touch austere, but it opens up to reveal more richness and depth, with tiers of fleshy plum and black cherry flavors, finishing with firm tannins and a long aftertaste. 1,900 cases made.

About This Producer


Situated at the base of the Mayacamas Range on the Rutherford Bench, this sixty-one acre property has ideal soils, microclimate and location. The estate's potential was recognized by some of the first Napa Valley settlers and was planted to vineyards in the mid 1860's. Today the certified organic estate is home to the Staglins, fifty-one acres of vines, an underground winery, the historic homestead and a solar array.

Staglin is undoubtedly within the top tier of California Cabernet producers. In addition to the flagship Staglin Family Vineyard label, they also produce a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Chardonnay under the Salus label.
