2-StaglinFamilyVineyard-CabernetSauvignon,Rutherford-NapaValley-1984

Staglin Family Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon 1994

RRP £128

Classic old-fashioned Napa, remarkably youthful for its age, with mineral intensity on the nose, a welcome hint of hay and really fine sweet briar fruit, the palate juicy and still fresh with excellent balance of acidity and tannins, long and luscious with no hint of over-extraction. An accomplished wine: buy a case and open a bottle a year to see how it evolves.
