Sterling Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 1978

Member Review by Wolle:

My Rating 87: This wine bought by me in 1982 shows built up of heavy sediment. The body is dry with a steely kind of taste. The nose is still fresh reminding me of a Bourdeaux. The taste grows on you. I paid $11 in 1982. Today that would be more like 30-40 $ . This was just part of a test how this wine would keep. It dried out considerable over the years.

Sterling Vineyards:
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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
