Sterling Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon Redwinesforeveryday 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Chewy wild berry, currant and mineral notes are tasty, with an herbal, light oak and citrusy edge that adds a touch of refreshment. Drink now.

Youthful and grapey, with currant and berry tones accented by vanilla, modest tannins and herb notes. Drink now through 2006.

Here's a good mouthful of Cabernet, with true varietal character. Blackberries and currants are generously framed in oak, and the tannins are nice and rich. It lacks a bit of complexity and subtlety, but this could be your house red.

Here's a workaday Cab that gets the job done without being fussy. It's dry, with some blackberry flavors and a quick finish.



<p>Sterling&rsquo;s most treasured wine with intense aromas of blackberry and ripe cherries, with hints of toasted vanilla and cocoa. Its flavor is full and powerful with dark fruit and cherry that combine with smooth tannins for an oaky, spicy finish. A wine that is great for all occasions and meals.</p>
