Staglin Family Vineyard

PRESS At Staglin Family Vineyard we strive to make the best possible wine from our property on the Rutherford bench. We are happy many of you enjoy what we produce.

October 2015 | Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon: 95-97 points
"The Staglins’ flagship wine is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from their holdings in Rutherford, in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. This wine has an opaque purple color and a stunning nose of blackcurrants, licorice, violets and background oak. It is full-bodied and intensely rich, with sweet tannin and a long finish. Look for it to drink well for 30-40+ years."

October 2015 | 2013 Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Booth Bella Oaks Vineyard: 94-96 points
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Booth Bella Oaks Vineyard comes from a great vineyard in Rutherford that was acquired by the Staglins. This wine exhibits a dense purple color and a beautiful, sweet kiss of blackcurrants and black cherries, with some graphite and loamy, earthy underbrush notes. It is full-bodied and juicy, with sweet tannin and layers of concentration as well as a finish that goes on for close to 45+ seconds. This 35-year wine should be at its peak in another 5-8 years and continue to hold beautifully."
-Robert M. Parker, Jr.

October 2015 | 2013 Staglin Family Vineyard Chardonnay Estate: 94 points
"Staglin has turned out a magnificent 2013 Chardonnay Estate that tastes like a hypothetical blend of the tropical, honeyed fruit of California interwoven with the minerality and crispness of a grand cru Chablis from France. This beautiful white wine offers hints of delicate peach, pineapple, honeysuckle and citrus blossom. There is fabulous fruit on the attack mid-palate and finish. Full-bodied with a subtle touch of oak, this beautifully concentrated Chardonnay should drink well for 3-4 years."
