Sterling Vineyards sources Napa Valley wines from 14 diverse vineyards that span 1200 acres of prime growing area, from the southern Carneros District to Diamond Mountain Ranch up north near the town of Calistoga. A wide range of growing conditions allows them to cultivate each kind of wine grape in the precise terroir that enhances its truest varietal expression-for the impeccable taste Sterling Vineyards is famous for.
The 2006 Sterling Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays deep ruby color and rich, expressive aromas of spicy black cherry and briary blackberry, with subtle hints of cedar and mocha. The mouthfilling flavors of ripe black and red fruits, laced with clove and allspice, persist through the lengthy finish. Silky, ripe tannins structure the wine and contribute to the plush texture on the palate.
