Winemaker Notes

Like the midnight sky, the broodingly dark color of the 2011 Staglin serves as a dramatic backdrop and counterpoint to the sparkling liveliness and lift exhibited by this wine. A complex nose of savory-herb and camphor infused blackcurrant and Mission fig is deepened by rich notes of forest floor and green olives with hints of anise. An impeccably balanced and ethereal palate of cinnamon inflected black-and-blueberries melts seamlessly into a silky leather, loam and mineral driven finish that is given a beautifully delicate structure by the super fine-grained tannins that mark the vintage.

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
A slightly lean wine with dark-chocolate and berry character. Medium body with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Classy and delicious. Very solid for the vintage.

Napa Valley

Red Wine

View all wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, and in a short span of time, Napa Valley is a relative newcomer in the world of prestigious red wine regions. While the 1960s brought a few determined growers to the valley, by the 1970s Napa Valley already had shown the world its ability to compete head-to-head with the esteemed region of Bordeaux. The victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris, followed by Robert Parker’s 100-point perfect score awarded to the Groth 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon brought plenty of acclaim to the valley.

Though Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly still dominates Napa Valley in every way, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and enjoying plenty of recognition, other red varieties certainly thrive here as well. Important but often overlooked include Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded for single varietal wines or for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel still exists in the valley and in its mountain appellations, representing an important historical stronghold for the region. Pinot noir can be produced but mainly in the cooler southern parts of the valley close to the San Pablo Bay.

What makes Napa such an amazing place for the production of red wines? Mainly it is a combination of ideal weather patterns and incredible soil variations. A balance of hot days and cool nights from the cool moist air of the San Pablo Bay or elevation, or both, allows even and slow ripening of its grapes. Furthermore the valley and its more mountainous sub appellations claim over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—all ideal for world-class red wine production.
