Sterling Vineyards Sterling Vineyards Cellar Club Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

In the glass, our Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon shows dark, inky purple depths that bloom with brambly black fruit, blueberry pie and layers of toasted oak, nutmeg and clove. The signature Rutherford fruit shines across the midpalate as the smooth entry develops a brooding underbelly of rich, dark, juicy fruit. Dried cherries, dark cocoa and sweet hazelnut coffee melt through the middle, joined by barrel nuances that lend tannins and structure without overpowering the fruit. This well-balanced, well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon will hold up to hardy roasted or braised meats and rich sauce dishes.

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.
