Winemaker Notes

"...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.

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
The Wine Advocate

A striking, provocative, complex set of aromatics jump from the glass of this dense plum/purple-colored wine. Beautiful plum, anise and black currant fruit characteristics are found in this voluptuously textured, opulent, full-bodied wine. This compelling effort from the Staglin Family appears to be close to full maturity given its impressive aromatics and silky mouthfeel, but its impeccable balance suggests it will last another 15+ years.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

elegant it dazzles, staying firm throughout, and getting even better through the finish. It's sweetly, opulently ripe, showing a panoply of red and black cherry and mocha flavors wrapped into ripe, dusty, fine tannins. Defines classic Rutherford. Decant if you drink now, or hold through 2020. Cellar Selection.

Champagne

View all wine

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
