    #58 Jeb Dunnuck's Top 100 2022

    I was able to taste two wines from Staglin Family, both showing brilliantly. An utterly ultra-classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon from Staglin sports a deep ruby/plum color to go with a gorgeous bouquet of ripe blackcurrant and blackberry fruits as well as spicy oak, chocolate, smoked tobacco, and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, perfectly balanced, rich, and opulent, yet also pure and precise, this might be the finest vintage of this cuvée ever produced. It will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and has 40-50 years of longevity ahead of it.—Jeb Dunnuck

    Staglin's 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate favors energy and tension over volume, at least at this point in its life. Bright, aromatic and sumptuous, the 2018 is fabulous right out of the gate. Inky red/purplish fruit, lavender, rose petal, cedar and menthol race across the palate. The 2018 is bright and focused from start to finish, with impeccable balance, well-judged oak and tons of sheer appeal. It is one of the best recent editions I can remember tasting. Winemaker Fredrik Johansson captured the magic of the 2018 vintage and put it all into the bottle. I can't wait to see how this ages. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

    Opaque, deep ruby, hint of mahogany on the rim. Expressive, classic Cabernet nose of graphite, fresh green leaf, mulberry and fresh currants. Cedar oak underpins the fruit aromatics. The first impression is one of an intensely serious wine. On the palate, that impression continues until the dark, sweet, ripe berry fruit begins to emerge and broaden and intensify in flavour. At that point, the wine relaxes a little and shows its Napa Valley heritage; all fresh, healthy, ripe dark berries from a truly excellent vintage. The tannin texture is grainy and firm but well integrated, leaving no grippy edges, just a rounded mouthfeel. The finish, long and flavourful, mimics the opening in its freshness, with a hint of mint and wild sage. This wine is drinking now but is young and will benefit cellaring for another three to four years before enjoying a long and happy life likely shaking off its serious mantle and maintaining its overtly fruity profile over the next 12 to 15 years.-Clare Tooley MW, Decanter
