    Winemaker's Notes:

    Staglin Family Vineyard winemaking is accomplished to create wines of intense fruit character, with soft, supple tannins that allow the wine to be drunk upon release, but have the capacity to age and become extremely complex over time. Our wines have a long finish, and deep color, characteristic of the grapes from our vineyard.

    Our completely organic farming methods are designed to produce the most developed and intense flavors possible from our Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Chardonnay grapes. Once created, our wines are aged in French oak for 20-24 months, with approximately half of these barrels being replaced each year. These wines are crafted in a style which maximizes fruit quality with soft tannins for extended aging potential. Due to these traits, our wines have earned highest ratings in numerous wine journals.

    Critical Acclaim:

    From its wonderfully involving cassis and tea-leaf aromas to its deep, slightly loamy, lavishly fruited flavors, this wonderfully well-filled offering stands at the head of the class in 2000. Convincingly varietal in every way, it shows a plush and supple side to start, but its firm and structured follow-through reminds that this is young Cabernet and that its very best lies some years hence. An exceptional effort, it is capable of improving for upwards of a decade and may last longer yet.

    Connoisseurs' Guide

    A superlative effort for the vintage, the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a deep purple color along with sumptuous aromas of creme de cassis, blackberries, loamy soil, licorice, and high class toasty oak. Medium to full-bodied and opulent, with remarkable texture as well as length for a 2000, it can be drunk now and over the next 12-15 years. Kudos to the Staglins for this effort.

    Mature yet complex, with integrated creamy mocha, dried currant, blackberry, mineral and sage flavors. Full-bodied, ending with a roasted coffee note.—2000 California Cabernet blind retrospective (August 2010). Drink now through 2015.
