Sterling Cabernet Rutherford 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes This is the inaugural vintage of the Sterling Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. A deep ruby color, this enticing wine offers lush aromas of ripe black cherries, toasty oak, spice and new leather. On the palate, the complexity grows with rich, round flavors of black cherry and oak leading to a long and fruity finish. The smooth, silky tannins make this wine a perfect accompaniment to flavorful grilled meats like beef tenderloin and lamb chops. It may also be paired with hard, aged cheeses.
