Can still stay in the cellar for a few mor years, but very drinkable now if you decant for a short time. On the nose some cassis and dark fruits. On the palate the tannins are gentle and allow some nice fruit to appear. Also picked up a slight hint of chocolate. The finish was somewhat short. A pretty good wine but not a special occassion wine

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 !!!

Our Sterling Vintner's Collection Cabernet Sauvignon displays tiers of briary blackberry, currant, spice, and chocolate from California's Central Coast. Soft floral and herbal nuances add complexity, and a year of aging in oak barrels added toasty vanilla spice.

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Cabernet Sauvignon combines ripe, rich character with elegance and poise. Black berry fruit and ripe cherries leap from the glass, supported by toasty vanilla and cocoa. Full and fleshy across the midpalate, dark fruit reigns, balanced by good acidity and bright cherry notes. Smooth, fruit-driven tannins cradle the finish, integrating subtle elements of oak and spice.

Sourced from distinctive terroir throughout Napa Valley along with one Knights Valley vineyard our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon expresses spicy black cherry, briary blackberry, and mocha aromas and flavors. Hints of clove and anise persist over the lengthy finish, and ripe tannins add structure and plush texture on the palate.

An excellent value for under $20, this Cabernet expresses spicy black cherry, briary blackberry and mocha aromas. Hints of clove and anise persist over the lengthy finish and ripe tannins add structure and plush texture on the palate.

We craft each wine with this in mind, choosing gentle techniques tailored to bring out the aromas and flavors that each grape variety develops in the terroir it likes best.

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the intense character of Monterey fruit in a full and balanced wine. Distinctive aromas of ripe blackberry, pepper, toast and hints of smoked meats are followed by subtle notes of light chocolate mint and vanilla. The palate offers concentrated black fruits, toffee and dark chocolate powder.

Winemaker's Notes:

Our “shining star,” the Cabernet Sauvignon combines ripe, rich character with elegance and poise. Black berry fruit and ripe cherries leap from the glass, supported by toasty vanilla and cocoa. Full and fleshy across the midpalate, dark fruit reigns, balanced by good acidity and bright cherry notes. Smooth, fruit-driven tannins cradle the finish, integrating subtle elements of oak and spice. A real crowd pleaser, this is a wine for all occasions, pairing equally well with herb-encrusted rack of lamb and pizza alike.

<p>Sterling&rsquo;s most treasured wine with intense aromas of blackberry and ripe cherries, with hints of toasted vanilla and cocoa. Its flavor is full and powerful with dark fruit and cherry that combine with smooth tannins for an oaky, spicy finish. A wine that is great for all occasions and meals.</p>
