Sterling Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast Vintner's Collection 2007
This is an increbible purchase at around $12. Deep color a strong nose of dark fruit with tastes of blackberry, chocolate, vanilla, mint and a touch of berry flavored smoke. The acidity is bananced beautifully the Tartaric acid balance gives it a crisp taste which denotes graceful aging. The tannins are mellow but present. I've never given a wine a 5 rating only to leave some room for the epitomy of an aged world class Cabernet that I will hopefully review in the near future. but this one deserves a high rating from me. I have found a winner! God bless Sterling Vineyards and Sonoma California !!!Add winemaker's notes
Our iconic winery is perched high above the town of Calistoga on a mid-valley hill. Its stark architectural beauty, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, and panoramic views of Napa Valley from the rooftop deck have attracted visitors from all 50 states for over 30 years.

Here's a deep red, almost black Cab, with strong aroma of spice, and blackberry. This is an Oakey Cab with intense fruit flavor and tannins that tickle your gums. It has hints of chocolate and coffee with a definite smokey taste when you draw in air after the swallow. It's finish is one of deep fruit on mid and back palate with a lasting smokieness. This is one of my favorite Christmas presents from a family friend.
Quite tasty in the $10 price range, bold flavors.
Tastes of blackberry, chocolate, and crisp taste. Very good
After 30 minutes in the decanter, this wine delivers a nice balance of berry fruit with a nice hint of vanilla that lasts throughout. It does finish mellow after acidic beginnings. This is a great value for cabernet.
intense, smokey but easily drinkable without food
what a nice wine for the price.. i have paid 5 times as much to enjoy wines like this. letting it breathe only adds to the greatness of this wine. yet another sipping wine added to my list
External Reviews for Sterling Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast Vintner's Collection
Supple and harmonious, with smooth currant, ripe, spicy plum and blackberry flavors that are sustained on a long, complex finish, ending with fine-grained tannins. An exceptional value in Napa Valley Cabernet. Drink now through 2008.
A well-oaked, deeply hued red wine with structure and complexity that belie the Sterling's reasonable price tag. Fresh mixed berry flavors mingle with an earthy, woodsy character; drink this Cabernet Sauvignon with rich roasts or your favorite soft cheeses.
Reminds me of a Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux with its trim mix of cedar, herb, dried currant and berry flavors, ending with firm tannins. Drink now. 74,970 cases made. -JL ** SOLD OUT **
Juicy berry flavors run smoothly through this wine, which is all about luscious quality. It's good juice, clean, soft and plump, easy to drink on its own or with anything meaty.
Deep ruby in color with concentrated aromas of blackberries, plums, rose petals with hints of spicy oak, cinnamon oil and juniper. Bright, rich and juicy in the mouth with an alluring caramel and semi-sweet chocolate finish.
Dark ruby in color, the Cabernet Sauvignon opens to spicy notes of raspberry and black cherry with hints of cedar and toasty oak rounding out the nose. Flavors of briar, blackberries, raspberries, hints of roasted coffee and an earthy, savory spiciness coat the palate, and lead to a long, elegant finish. These wonderful flavors and the wine's smooth, mouth-filling tannins make this wine a perfect accompaniment to barbecued steaks and lamb chops, as well as richer pasta dishes and ripe cheeses.
