2016 Staglin Family Chardonnay Estate  (Rutherford) 90

Medium-bodied, bright, fresh, crisp yellow citrus fruits with notes of flowers, honeysuckle and vanilla is ready to go. This is probably best for near-term drinking.

2012 Staglin Family Cabernet Sauvignon 30th Anniversary Selection  (Rutherford) 95

Lush, plush, rich, ripe, fat, round, opulently textured and delicious. The wine serves up a blast of ripe, sweet, black and blue fruits, vanilla bean, licorice and smoke. Full bodied and intense, this velvety wine is already hedonistic and should be even better in a few years. The wine was made using a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

2010 Staglin Family Chardonnay Salus  (Rutherford) 87

Golden yellow in color, honey, floral, melon and citrus aromas open to a sweet, tropical and citrus filled wine that is a bit hot on the finish.

2010 Staglin Family Chardonnay Estate  (Rutherford) 92

Stone, citrus and buttered pineapple scents open to a soft, fat, open, spicy, citrus filled wine. Aged in 50% new, French oak for 11 months, of which 8 of those months were spent on its lees, this Chardonnay can be enjoyed on release.

2009 Staglin Family Cabernet Sauvignon Estate  (Rutherford) 94

Blending 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the wine offers truffle, blackberry jam, spicy cassis, coffee bean, smoky oak and vanilla scents. In the mouth, this lush, fat, polished, wine delivers sweet, ripe, black cherry liqueur with cocoa. Aged in 95% new, French oak for 22-24 months, this forward styled Cabernet Sauvignon is already delicious.

2008 Staglin Family Cabernet Sauvignon Estate  (Rutherford) 92

From a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the wine opens with coffee bean, jammy plum, incense and burnt maple sugar notes. Lush, textures and a tasty, sweet, plum liqueur and cassis finish are the hallmarks of this wine.

Jammy blackberries, mineral and spicy cassis open to a spicy, tannic, Caberent Sauvignon that will show much better after a few years of bottle age.

2007 Staglin Family Cabernet Sauvignon 25th Anniversary Selection  (Rutherford) 95

Combining ripe, plush, juicy, dark berries with licorice, chocolate and coffee, this opulent treat is not an over the top style of wine. It's fresh, rich, concentrated, plush, harmonious and balanced. I really like this style of Cabernet Sauvignon.
