Staglin Family Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Salus 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2003 growing season was marked by distinct variations in weather patterns. After a cold and wet early spring, a trouble-free bloom in May resulted in excellent berry set for our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Sunny and hot weather followed, which accelerated ripening and advanced flavors in the grape clusters. The warm weather endured with sustained hot and dry conditions, ensuring even ripening all the way to another classic harvest. This 2003 STAGLIN FAMILY VINEYARD Cabernet reflects this classic vintage. With saturated ruby and hints of black colors, the 2003 STAGLIN FAMILY VINEYARD reveals an intense bouquet of blackcurrant, ripe plum, black cherry, interspersed with nuances of cedar and black olive, distinctive of the Rutherford dust. Very rich and full-bodied, this wine offers the same ripe fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is creamy with delicious velvet tannins, which lead to a long finish. This 2003 STAGLIN FAMILY VINEYARD is already showing beautifully and will continue to develop superbly for 10-15 years.

Last Valentine's Day we discovered the 2003 Staglin Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon at Gotham Bar & Grill, and as any smart men with a newfound love would do, we searched and found several bottles for our collection. This is an amazing cab, with a great balance of dark fruity elements and it tannins. But it's the LONG finish that is most amazing to us!

Even though this is the baby cab (versus Staglin Cab ex Salus), it is yummy. I have never done the side by side tasting; however, I feel that everything the Staglin family touches turns to gold (in my tummy). Since this is the less expensive of the two ($65ish a bottle I believe), I highly recommend that you drink it although it's like Lay's potato chips, bet you can't drink just one...glass.

Full-bodied, delicious, paired wonderfully with the lamb we had. One of the better cabs I've ever tried!
