2009 Staglin Family "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1125559 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The dense blue/purple-colored 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate possesses a complex bouquet of black cherry and black currant liqueur, forest floor, baking spice and subtle background oak. This rich, complex, full-bodied 2009 is just beginning to open and show tertiary nuances. It should continue to age well for 20-25 years. (RP)  (10/2013)

95 points Vinous

 The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is bursting with primal energy. Sweet floral notes meld into juicy red berries, spice box and cedar, all of which are laced together with remarkable elegance. Silky tannins add to an impression of refinement and total finesse. In 2009, Staglin’s Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its superb delineation and nuance. The 2009 can be enjoyed with minimum cellaring if given a few hours in decanter. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. (AG)  (12/2012)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright medium ruby. Musky aromas of black raspberry, cherry liqueur, licorice, violet, herbs and graphite minerality, given added sex appeal by notes of pipe tobacco and rich, peaty soil; a splendid manifestation of Rutherford terroir. Very plush and fine-grained, but with enough ripe acidity to give shape and energy to its flavors of red and darker berries, spices and licorice. Suggestions of cured tobacco and dark topsoil add interest. An excellent showing, as the wine's tannins have mellowed nicely since I originally tasted this wine. Delicious now, but this should last well owing to its firmness and elegance. (ST, in Vinous)  (7/2019)

92 points Connoisseurs Guide

 Glimmers of vanilla and pastry-crust sweetness are comfortably partnered to deep and defined fruit at every step of the way here, and hints of dried flowers slowly come into play as do complexing touches of the classic Rutherford "dust." The wine is moderately full-bodied and lithe on the palate before youthful tannins intervene, and, if far from being polished or anywhere near ready to drink at this point, it is assuredly a keeper and will age famously for a dozen or more years. *Two Stars*  (12/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

 This pure, elegant red delivers supple, refined red berry, black cherry and subtle spicy-floral scents. Offers less richness than some Staglins, yet shows delicacy and finesse. (JL)  (10/2012)
