About the Winery: Since 1985 the Staglin family has been dedicated to producing wines of exceptional quality that distinctly reflect their "Rutherford Dust" heritage. "Great Wine for Great Causes" is their motto. A portion of the revenues of each bottle of Salus goes to support mental health research.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: The silky and detailed 2018 Staglin Cabernet is a poised and elegant classic that impresses with its old-world charms and modern-day precision. Initial notes of herb laden cassis and cedary plums evolve into layers of lavender infused raspberry liqueur and menthol lifted cherry compote spiced by green peppercorns, ground coffee and a dusting Piment d'Espelette. The beautiful weight, delicate concentration and powder fine-grained structure delivers a wonderfully graceful and balanced palate experience that is a sheer classy delight.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon.
