The bouquet blossomed like a purple rose as the wine opened and became richer, fuller, and even more vibrant. A voluptuous mouthfeel with a memorable finish.

THE wine to pair with food that is cilantro heavy, Serrano peppers, achiote, red onion, lime, fresh tortillas, sour cream, cotija cheese, steak / chicken . Opened a bit tight but 15 mins in decanter had mid palate develop more. Got deliciously sweet with increasingly spicier food. We enjoyed with Tapas style small plate street tacos. Awesome. Strawberry & Grape candy , a mild tannic pull, medium length finish.

This wine displays a deep ruby color with rich aromas of cherry and blackberry and a hint of coffee. The mouthfilling flavors of ripe black and red fruits, laced with spice, persist through the lengthy finish. Silky, ripe tannins structure the wine and contribute to the plush texture on the palate.

This wine maybe past its prime. Otherwise its a real disappointment coming from what I had thought was a premium napa valley winery. It has good balance but no complexity and a very weak finish.. Where are the tannins ? This wine is overpriced and not a good value for what its being sold for. There are much better california cabs for half the price.

The 05 Sterling Napa Valley Cab is a better vintage. Omark is right... The 04 just doesn't have any body & the finish was weak! In the 04, there just is no real difference between this cab & their Vinter's Collection. The 04 isn't worth the money... The 05 was a much better year!

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.

Smooth and elegant, our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers the reputed charm of its pedigree. Intense aromas, led by toasty oak and spice, unfold with layers of cardamom, cedar, dark chocolate and anise over briary fruit. Velvety, plush and round, the palate delivers style and sophistication with enjoyable, rewarding accessibility. Layers of red fruit, brown sugar, and black licorice are joined by chocolately tannins that melt into a long finish. The cooler vintage left a lift of acid that makes it perfect for pairing with food. Try with a hearty mushroom tart, roasted pork loin or grilled meat. - WineryBarrel Aging: 12- 14 months46% French oak38% American oak16% European oakAlcohol: 14.6%Acidity: 5.9 g/L

The Sterling Vineyards winemaking team believes that our wines should express true varietal character. We craft each wine with this in mind, choosing gentle techniques tailored to bring out the aromas and flavors that each grape variety.

Offers expressive character and appealing charm. Intense aromas of sweet cassis and black currant open the nose and are joined by gentle, well-integrated oak notes and suggestive hints of violet and black pepper.

Winemaker Notes - A cumulative expression of this renowned growing region, our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers expressive character and appealing charm. Intense aromas of sweet cassis and black currant open the nose and are joined by gentle, well-integrated oak notes and suggestive hints of violet and black pepper. On the palate, long, ripe flavors of dark fruit are flanked by clove, cocoa and vanilla, with supple tannins and a long, smooth finish. Pair this gracious wine with grilled meats or hearty pastas.
