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
October 2016 | 2013 Staglin Family Vineyard Estate Cabernet Sauvignon: 97+ points
"Both 2013 Cabernet Sauvignons are in bottle, and both are absolutely magnificent wines, probably the two finest Cabernets made by the Staglins to date. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford (14.9% alcohol) has a stunning fragrance of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers (or is it violets?), sweet blackcurrant and black raspberry fruit, and a layered, opulent, rich and full-bodied mouthfeel. Add to that striking purity, equilibrium, and serious but finely grained tannins, and this is their finest Rutherford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon made to date. It has at least 30-40 years of life ahead of it. This is a very impressive portfolio of wines from Staglin Family Vineyard."
