Bright medium ruby. Cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice, violet and spicy oak on the nose. Densely packed and ripe but also nicely vibrant, with good lift and saline complexity to the black cherry, dark berry and licorice flavors. Finishes with big, ripe tannins and very good chocolatey persistence. Hints at slightly elevated alcohol but also boasts harmonious acidity and plenty of personality. An excellent vintage for this bottling.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate possesses a denser ruby/purple color, more structure and tannin, and hints of toasty oak intermixed with tobacco leaf, black currant and graphite. Slightly closed but very promising, it has a medium to full-bodied, youthful, pure style as well as a wonderful length and finish. Cellar it for several more years and drink it over the following two decades.

This gorgeous, enticing, richly flavored wine is remarkable for its understated elegance and finesse, with subtle touches of green and black olive, dried currant, sage, cedar and dusty, loamy earth. Wows you with delicacy. Very typical of Rutherford.

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.
