At first a bit reticent and brooding, with a swirl and a breath of air the 2017 Staglin Cabernet awakens into an energetic cascade of red and black fruit deepened by dollops of earth, resinous woods and pinched herbs. An opening blast of tar inflected boysenberry and black cherry glides into a granular midpalate of star anise infused cassis and molasses-drizzled warm figs complexed with notes of camphor, seasoned alder and hint of hyssop that is surprisingly approachable, finely-grained and imminently enjoyable now.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is an attractive, racy wine with plush fruit, soft contours and tons of sheer immediacy. Sweet red berry fruit, floral notes, spice and mint are all nicely lifted in this enticing, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon from Staglin. The 2017 o!ers lovely freshness and aromatic presence in a medium-bodied Cabernet that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring.
This packs juicy blackberry and boysenberry flavors together, along with licorice, apple wood and tar notes. On the extracted side, but shows brambly energy throughout for balance. The fruit persists on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2032. 1,700 cases made.
