    Winemaker's Notes:

    #16 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

    The 2007 growing season can be characterized as dry, early and light – the winter rainy season was short, budbreak was early, the growing season was consistent and on the warm side with a significant heatwave in late August just prior to harvest, resulting in a small crop that produced intensely flavored fruit with great color, intense flavors and substantial extract.

    The evocative nose lead by crème de cassis, camphor and black raspberries grows more complex with air, revealing swirls of cedar, graphite, cinnamon and cocoa beans that dance above a foundation of loam, black olives and woodspice. A substantial palate of ripe red and black fruits opens with redcurrants, plums and raspberries building to a mid-palate interplay of blackberries and chocolate covered Bing cherries framed by lush and tangy tannins kept fresh by a vibrant, balancing acidity. Given a bit more time in bottle to fully knit together, this wine will sing and provide pleasure for many years come.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A pure and seductive style, with enticing aromas of mocha, baking spices, melted chocolate, ripe plum, black cherry and black licorice that are supple, elegant, balanced, rich and layered, ending with an amazingly long and persistent finish.

    The sensational 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (their 25th anniversary selection) may be the best wine Staglin has ever made. Tasting like a classic Margaux or St.-Julien, it offers up notes of new saddle leather, cedar, spice box, black currants, black cherries and hints of graphite and wood. This full-bodied, intense 2007 is still extremely young, but it is beautifully proportioned with a seamless integration of all the component parts. A brilliant effort, it admirably reflects its appellation. Moreover, it should drink beautifully over the next 20-25 years.

    A big wine, rather ponderous now in the size and forwardness of its fruit and the volume of mainly new French oak. The fruit is massive, suggesting black and red sour cherry candy, with oak influences of smoky char and pencil shavings, and complex notes of minerals and sweet violet flowers. But it all needs time to come together. Tasted in a large flight of 2007 Rutherford Cabernets and Bordeaux blends, this was easily the star. Really hard to exaggerate the wine’s beauty and elegance.
