Staglin Family, Rutherford, Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014
Tasting Notes: Fragrant dark red and black fruits set the stage for the exotic interplay of aromatic woods, bow rosin and sharpened graphite. On the palate, a medley of black raspberry, blackcurrant and cranberry fill a warm graham cracker crust drizzled with nearly-molten brown sugar and flecked with dark chocolate. Like a chiseled and sinuous boxer sitting in his corner, the youthful and deep Staglin Cabernet is a wine of controlled power, poised while waiting to showcase its long, silky and fine-grained structure.
Wine Spectator 94/00: Sleek and polished, this is a textural triumph, with silky tannins and rich, well-defined flavors of dark berry, currant, cassis, mocha, cedar and road tar. Drink now through 2032.
Food Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.
