Sterling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast Vintner's Collection 2009

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.

Gift from Mom, 9/21/17. I rarely purchase Calif. cabernet. My experience is there is better value in the imports. Yes, I am cheap, but I have also been burned more times than I care to mention. However, my wife enjoyed this bottle over several nights. On behalf of my wife, thank you mother.

Nice central coast cab. Not a lot of depth but decent medium to dark fruit flavors, medium finish, slight acidity and slight, chewy tannins.

Dark purple in the glass. Concentrated dark fruits and woody aroma. Medium tannins. Great earthy, dark fruit flavors on the palate. Very enjoyable.

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

Brimming with style and elegance, our Cabernet Sauvignon offers generous dark fruit and toasty spices. The nose is a heady mix of cedar, tobacco and oak spices over briary black fruits. In the mouth, flavors of dark cherry, ripe plum and mulberries unfold with supple ease, influenced by a small amount of Merlot, which fleshes out the midpalate and lends lovely red tones. A lively acidity picks up on the back of the palate as the dark fruit flavors exit with a peppery finish. Pair this well-balanced, medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled meats or pasta. - Winery

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.

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.

Our 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is distinguished by its dark profile and deep, decadent flavors, representative of the cool vintage. Aromas of black plums and cherry pie are elevated by layers of spice cake and caramelized vanilla. Boysenberry jam introduces the palate, supported by black fruit and swirls of rich cocoa. Barrel influence is evident in the complex structure and toasty spices that accompany the dark chocolaty tannins into a long, lively finish. This wine makes a fine accompaniment to braised short ribs or pasta carbonara. - WineryVarietal Composition:81% Cabernet Sauvignon5% Merlot5% Cabernet Franc3% Petite Verdot3% Petite Sirah2% Malbec1% SyrahBarrel Aging: 15 months45% American oak45% French oak10% European oakAppellation: Napa ValleyAlcohol: 14.6%Acidity: 5.8g/LpH: 3.78Ageability: 2012 to 2017

Youthful and grapey, with currant and berry tones accented by vanilla, modest tannins and herb notes. Drink now through 2006.

<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>
