Staglin 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

Cellar Selection

The 2008 vintage wasn't the greatest ever in Napa, and this isn't the greatest ever Staglin Cabernet. But it is one of the successes of the vintage, showing how a great winery rises over vintage limitations. Feels lush and dramatic in the mouth, with lush, smooth tannins housing classic Cabernet flavors of black currants, plums, green olives and dark chocolate, accented with spicy, smoky oak. Should develop in the bottle over at least six years, and could be one of those sleepers that surprises in 20.
