Sterling Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A rich purple-violet hue, the wine shows a rich, deep fruit concentration and jamminess. Hints of spice and toasty oak reflect vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and cedar. The wine is bright and clear with a long full textured finish.

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.

Flavors of red berries on the nose - nice and fruity. Sour cherry on the palate.

Soft and easy, with berry, plum, tobacco and sage flavors and supple tannins. Acidity is low. This is a dry, pleasant wine of no special complexity, but fun to drink.

A dark, earthy wine that will suprise you. The rich, deep flavors of spiced plum, blackberry and mocha last through the lingering finish. Fully dry, it also has some sturdy tannins that will stand up well to roast meats.

Nicely focused and easy to sip, with bright plum and spicy oak aromas and fruit-forward black cherry, herb and sassafras flavors. Drink now through 2011.

Well-oaked, with cedary vanilla flavors adding dimension to the ripe cherry and currant-scented flavors, finishing with firm tannins. Drink now through 2008. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Firm in structure, with tight, cedary currant, earth and cherry notes, turning dry. A style that will appeal to left-bank Bordeaux lovers Drink now through 2006.

A dense, dark plum in color, the wine offers aromas of black cherry, raspberry, toasty oak, nutmeg, and cloves. Luscious flavors of blackberries, cherries, cocoa, cedar, and vanilla lead to a full, well-textured finish.

Deep ruby color. Big, dense, jammy aromas of ripe plums and black cherry. Plush, elegant, full, ripe-fruit flavors framed with spicy oak and subtle youthful tannins. The wine is fleshy and full, with gobs of flavor.
