Sterling Vineyards Cellar Club Cabernet Franc Napa Valley 2009
Displaying classic varietal character, our Cabernet Franc offers ripe fruit tinged by smoke, dry earth and subtle oak accents. Aromas leap from the glass with dark plum, cassis and tobacco. Across the palate, cedar, hay and toast interplay over a sweet fruit backdrop. Tannins are present but not overpowering, with a well-tamed grip that holds the finish. Savory, salty foods will bring forward the fruit in this wine; pair it with roasted meats and stews.
Our iconic winery is perched high above the town of Calistoga on a mid-valley hill. Its stark architectural beauty, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, and panoramic views of Napa Valley from the rooftop deck have attracted visitors from all 50 states for over 30 years.
