2009 Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon: 95 points
"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is bursting with primal energy. Sweet floral notes meld into juicy red berries, spice box and cedar, all of which are laced together with remarkable elegance. Silky tannins add to an impression of refinement and total finesse. In 2009, Staglinís Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its superb delineation and nuance. The 2009 can be enjoyed with minimum cellaring if given a few hours in decanter. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029."
