91 Points - Wine Enthusiast"Just lovely to drink now, it's so softly lush and decadently delicious. Beguiles the palate with jammy, pastry flavors of raspberries, cherries and sweet oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc."Winemaker's notes:Our 2007 Sterling SVR Reserve is a compelling combination of intense, dark character and gracious, inviting approachability. Heady, complex aromas reveal layers of cherry-almond, black plum and licorice, with subtle oak spices. The intricate blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc lends breadth to the palate, with fleshy fruit up front developing into bittersweet chocolate, espresso and toast notes toward the back. Dense, chewy tannins melt across the finish, followed by persistent fruit that lingers well after the wine has departed. A fine balance of rich flavors and bright acidity, this wine is a perfect fit for an elegant meal of roast lamb or braised short ribs.
According to the Wine Spectator: Sleek, elegant and stylish, with a trim, complex band of spicy, cedary currant, mineral, anise and blackberry flavors. Tight and full-bodied, with the best years ahead of it. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2012 through 2020.
