|Since the early 1960s, Sterling Vineyards has been a benchmark producer of world-renowned Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The classic Sterling house style is defined by dense, ripe fruit with generous flavors and elegant tannins.
The 2011 Cabernet was sourced from several vineyards that show the diversity and depth of the Napa Valley growing region. A portion of the grapes came from Rutherford, giving distinctive notes of cocoa powder, juicy fruit and complex tannins. The high-altitude mountain vineyards provide rich aromatics and red berry intensity while vineyards from the valley floor complement the profile with rich texture and luscious tannins.
One of the truly great values in Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2011 Sterling holds back nothing. Rich dark berry aromas unfold in the mouth with layers of mocha and espresso, complemented nicely with touches of vanilla, cloves and spice. Luxuriously rich and well structured with a velvety texture and supple tannins, this is the perfect wine for any occasion, from simple meals to elegant affairs.
