    From the beautiful benchland vineyard in Rutherford, the vines for this wine were first planted in 1964 and 1965. under the consulting work of one of the most iconic and historic names in Napa Valley - Andre Tchelistcheff. More recently, the vineyard is managed by the super-viticulturalist David Abreu, and the wines have been made under the consulting brilliance of world-famous Michel Rolland ever since he first started consulting in 1999. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is fresh and beautifully pure, with notes of blackcurrants and spice, a luscious, open and opulent texture, sweet tannin, and copious quantities of floral-infused blackcurrant fruit gently touched by new oak. Look for its lofty, heady alcohol (14.8%). It is elegant, pure and fresh. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

    Smooth and fleshy, with an appealing mix of spicy red currant, black cherry, plum and light cedary oak, joined by a loamy earthiness. Gains velocity and length, while remaining elegant and supple.

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.
