Winemaker's Notes:

Staglin Family Vineyard winemaking is accomplished to create wines of intense fruit character, with soft, supple tannins that allow the wine to be drunk upon release, but have the capacity to age and become extremely complex over time. Our wines have a long finish, and deep color, characteristic of the grapes from our vineyard.

Our completely organic farming methods are designed to produce the most developed and intense flavors possible from our Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Chardonnay grapes. Once created, our wines are aged in French oak for 20-24 months, with approximately half of these barrels being replaced each year. These wines are crafted in a style which maximizes fruit quality with soft tannins for extended aging potential. Due to these traits, our wines have earned highest ratings in numerous wine journals.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, comments: "I find these Cabernet Sauvignons to be graceful, elegant, and undeniably stylish. One of Napa Valley's more gorgeous winery and vineyard sites."
