Tight if a touch austere, with a trim band of cedary currant, anise and spice. Turns elegant and even delicate on the finish, where the tannins are dry and firm. Best from 2002 through 2009.

The saturated flavors make this rsquo;98 a solid and juicy Cabernet. Blueberry, sassafras and honey scents combine in a cool, clean style, rounded by the cocoa of oak. Ready to drink with a steak.

Situated prominently on a hill just south of Calistoga, Sterling Vineyards overlooks a green carpet of vines covering the northern Napa Valley floor. Consistency has been the hallmark of this wineryrsquo;s tradition. Perhaps it is in keeping with the old London church bells that still chime every half hour in the facilityrsquo;s tower. Sterling has demonstrated this quality once again, even after having been dealt a challenging growing season by Mother Nature and El Nintilde;o. The yield from the rsquo;98 vintage was small; only the consummate winemaker was able to produce juice of this caliber. The wine is deep garnet in color, with alluring aromas of blackberry, plums, and cinnamon spice. It is polished, lush, and juicy with black cherry, cocoa, and mocha smoothness. Decadent and delicious, this truly is a wine for whom the hedonistrsquo;s bell will toll.

Therersquo;s lots of charm in this classic Napa Cab. It opens with aromas of black currants, espresso and tobacco, and has a nice edge of toasty oak. Dry and smooth, with attractive berry flavors and soft tannins.

Juicy berry flavors run smoothly through this wine, which is all about luscious quality. Itrsquo;s good juice, clean, soft and plump, easy to drink on its own or with anything meaty.

In our Cabernet Sauvignon you will find lush blackberry, cherry and black currant flavors wrapped with vanilla and spice from barrel aging. These characters come from Californias Central Coast, the most diverse appellation in the state. Here you will find both cool foggy nights and sunny warm days that lead to fresh, bright and fruit forward wines. Enjoy with boldly flavored foods, such as grilled steak, roasted lamb or pork, and mellow cheeses. - Winery

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.

<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>
