December 2017 | 2015 Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate: 96 points
"Staglin's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is ripe, racy and voluptuous, which is to say very much in line with the style of the year. Kirsch, succulent red cherry, mint and spice add layers of nuance, but in this vintage it is the wine's raciness and sweet, silky tannins that give the wine its forward, open-knit personality. Ripeness is pushed to the edge in the 2015, and yet all the elements flow together effortlessly. Even with all of its obvious ripeness and raciness, this is decidedly a mid-weight style of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon."
August 2017 | 2014 Staglin Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford: 94 points
"Sleek and polished, this is a textural triumph, with silky tannins and rich, well-defined flavors of dark berry, currant, cassis, mocha, cedar and road tar. Drink now through 2032."
-James Laube, The Wine Spectator Insider
December 2016 | 2014 Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate: 93 points
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, from Staglin’s home Rutherford property, is bright and aromatically lifted, with a slightly redder expression of fruit and more floral overtones. A wine with lovely inner sweetness, finesse and aromatics, the Estate peaks to polish above all else. Historically, this wine has developed very well in bottle. I expect that will be the case here as well."
-Antonio Galloni, Vinous
