Staglin Family Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2015
JD98: Still showing brilliantly (and I don't expect that to change), the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has the ripe, expansive, sexy style of the vintage front and center. Loads of crème de cassis, blueberries, crushed violets, and spice all soar from this beauty, which is powerful and rich, yet perfectly balanced. At the same quality level as the 2013, it's nevertheless in a much more approachable, flamboyant style. Drink it any time over the coming two decades or more. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous wine.
VM96: Staglin’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is ripe, racy and voluptuous, which is to say very much in line with the style of the Kirsch, succulent red cherry, mint and spice add layers of nuance, but in this vintage it is the wine's raciness and , silky tannins that give the wine its forward, open-knit personality. Ripeness is pushed to the edge in the 2015, ret all the elements flow together effortlessly. Even with all of its obvious ripeness a raciness, this is decidedly a mid-weight style of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
