"...offers a dense purple color, abundant aromas of creme de cassis, spice box, cedar, and Chinese black tea, velvety tannins, and full-bodied power. This complex Cabernet can be drunk over the next 15+ years."
- Wine Advocate
With saturated ruby and hints of black colors, the 2003 STAGLIN FAMILY VINEYARD reveals an intense bouquet of blackcurrant, ripe plum, black cherry, interspersed with nuances of cedar and black olive, distinctive of the Rutherford dust. Very rich and full-bodied, this wine offers the same ripe fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is creamy with delicious velvet tannins, which lead to a long finish. This 2003 STAGLIN FAMILY VINEYARD is already showing beautifully and will continue to develop superbly for 10-15 years.
