Sterling Albert Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Lake County 2006

External Review:

I want to WEAR the color of this wine - and after a few glasses I probably could be wearing it! The nose is cherry apple pie with hints of cardamom and cedar. There are flavors of bright fruit and cedar that lead into a chokecherry finish. At $18/bottle, you've got to taste this beauty for yourself.

Sterling Albert Winery:
Sterling Albert Winery is a dream that has come to life. From the day I planted my first grapevine in 1996, I was inspired to start a winery and make fine wines. Time has passed and a new vineyard has been planted that led to the conception and construction of the winery. The dream is now a reality. I stand behind my name, nothing is more personal.

Sterling Albert Winery is a dream that has come to life. From the day I planted my first grapevine in 1996, I was inspired to start a winery and make fine wines. Time has passed and a new vineyard has been planted that led to the conception and construction of the winery. The dream is now a reality. I stand behind my name, nothing is more personal. "WINE WITHOUT COMPROMISE" - has been created. I personally grow and acquire the best grapes from my selected and controlled vineyards for our fine wines.This is all about the wine - its complexity, structure and aromas. Read less

The hot nose shows flavors of cigar tobacco and hints of blackberrys. The mouthfeel shows great potential. Like the nose, it is hot, and in addition is a bit too tight and tannic for me. So if heavy, bitter tannins are for you - this is a great wine. To be fair, I would like to try this wine with food, because it shows potential for some great pairings. Personally, for my pallet, if I am to drink this wine without food - I'll wait until 2010 when the wine matures a bit...

Wow. . . . this is not a wine for beginners but if you are new to the game, I would still invite you try this out. The color is gorgeous - a brilliant plummy purple. The nose is classic and really pretty! Look for the hints of dried tobacco leaves, licorice and cedar box. On your palate, bright plums dance wildly with a dusty dry finish! It is a bit young, so if you can, buy three or four bottles!! You have to be able to try this now and see how it changes after a few years of cellaring. What a great value at $18/bottle!
