Food Pairings for P. M. Staiger Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains
I believe the 2000 vintage of P&M Staiger, was their only Cabernet offering to be labeled as, "Montage" as it has about 74% Cabernet. Out of all the California cabernets that I have tasted for the uneven 2000 vintage, this one remains one of my personal favorites. It has a nose and taste of distinctive,smoked, dark berry-cassis, with a touch of olive and cream . Seductive tannins that are a perfect match for the concentration and fruit, yet elegant, complex, and subtle. I would describe this wine as the bridge between Bordeaux and well made California, with character. I have had the pleasure of trying this Staiger 2000 vintage shortly upon it's release, once again a few years after aging, and now 8 years after it was harvested, all with consistent notes. It is well integrated now, and this wine is just singing! I can't wait to try my last bottle that I have waiting in my cellar. An obscure winery, but well worth the search.
