Sterling Collection Cabernet 2007

Member Review by jamessulis:

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 !!!

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.

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.

There's lots of charm in this classic Napa Cab. It opens with aromas of black currants, espresso and tobacco, and has a nice edge of toasty oak. Dry and smooth, with attractive berry flavors and soft tannins.

The saturated flavors make this '98 a solid and juicy Cabernet. Blueberry, sassafras and honey scents combine in a cool, clean style, rounded by the cocoa of oak. Ready to drink with a steak.

Combines ripe, rich, complex fruit with a sense of elegance and grace. The core flavors of currant, black cherry, plum and spice are sharply focused, with supple, well-integrated tannins. Buy a case at this price. Drink now through 2009.

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.
