International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

Full red-ruby. Spicy aromas of currant, cherry, licorice and fresh herbs. Varietally accurate cabernet flavors of plum, raw currant, cedar and spice, with complicating notes of herbs and dark chocolate. Finishes with firm, slightly drying tannins and good length.

Very deep crimson. Already a little bit of evolution. Very full and opulent and less obviously terroir-influenced than the older wines. Ripeness and Napa style more than anything else. Big and brutal and a touch of tea ? is this because it?s very slightly porty?! Hint of milk chocolate. Still extremely young. This should be a great wine ? but less distinctive than some other vintages. The alcohol seems especially marked.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 142

The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, notes of graphite and black currants in an elegant, Bordeaux-styled format, medium body, outstanding purity, and an angular, dry, austere finish despite its beautiful aromatics and palate. It is less impressive than it was from barrel. It was neither fined nor filtered, yet it appears to have shut down. Whether it re-emerges is a matter of conjecture. It is one of those perplexing Cabernets with a low ninety point bouquet, but tough-textured flavors. Patience will be required.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A big step up in quality for Staglin, with tiers of dense, chewy, richly flavored currant, earth, blackberry, cherry, mineral and mocha. Finishes with a long, intense, plush aftertaste. Shows some heat and rough tannins and oak, but nothing short-term cellaring won't resolve. 2,582 cases made.

Medium to full bodied. The acidity level is low and the fruit not as full as I remember from earlier tasting. Nevertheless, it does deliver blackberry, currants and cedar after an hour of air. Drink now.
