October 2014 | 2012 Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 30th Anniversary: 96 points
"One of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignons yet made by the Staglins is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 30th Anniversary. It boasts a dense ruby/purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of crème de cassis, camphor, incense, blackberries and high quality, subtle toast in the background. There is great fruit on the attack and the wine fills out beautifully in the mid-palate. Full-bodied and opulent, this is a classic yet voluptuous example of the 2012 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon crop. It will be delicious young, but age beautifully for two decades or more."

October 2014 | 2013 Staglin Family Vineyard Chardonnay Estate: 94 points
"Staglin has turned out a magnificent 2013
Chardonnay Estate that tastes like a hypothetical
blend of the tropical, honeyed fruit of California
interwoven with the minerality and crispness of a
grand cru Chablis from France. This beautiful
white wine offers hints of delicate peach,
pineapple, honeysuckle and citrus blossom.
There is fabulous fruit on the attack mid-palate
and finish. Full-bodied with a subtle touch of oak,
this beautifully concentrated Chardonnay should
drink well for 3-4 years."

October 2014 | 2012 Staglin Family Vineyard Cabernet
Sauvignon Booth Bella Oaks Vineyard: 95 points
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Booth Bella Oaks
Vineyard comes from the same vineyard the late
Joe Heitz made famous at his cellars, when it
was called Bella Oaks. Staglin’s offering is a
sensual, seductive, dark ruby/purple-colored
Cabernet offering notes of licorice, incense,
black cherries and blackcurrants. Savory and
round with no hard edges, it comes across like a
high fashion design from Chanel. Full-bodied,
elegant and pure, this beauty should drink well
for 15 or more years."
