Staglin Family Vineyards has been producing impeccable wines from one of Napa Valley’s truly singular sites since 1864, and their 2018 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is without question the greatest bottle I’ve ever had.
@staglinfamilyvineyard out did themselves with this one! Black fruit and raspberry with tobacco and espresso complexity. Perfect compliment to thanksgiving short ribs.

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.
This is a very controversial wine in the wine world. Some love it, yet some really hate it. I can understand both sides.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim. Not showing age at all.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, tobacco, light vinaigrette, earth, chocolates, peppercorn, coffee and mocha.
Nice finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.
This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
Tasty and delicious with a strong nose. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.
I had this vintage 7 years ago, and liked it just as much. This time
I had it blind, so it is what it is.
Wine Spectator 91 points. Robert Parker 96 points.
This 10 year old is easy drinking and good for parties.
Very enjoyable by itself or with food. A good sipping wine.
14.6% alcohol by volume.

Pop and pour pre Thanksgiving dinner fireup with oysters. A stunning medium gold color. On the nose: perfumed notes of baked banana, celery, vanilla, green apple, slate. Taste: smooth, chalky wine with apricots, lemon, lime zest, flinty, white grapefruit, minerals. Nice....though on the lower acidity for Stony Hill. — 2 days ago
