Sterling Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|REGION||Napa Valley, United States
Sterling has more than five decades of winemaking excellence in Napa Valley, and winemaker Harry Hansen is able to build from that experience to select the finest lots to create the most memorable expressions of the varietal for each vintage.
Key to the signature Sterling style is the contribution of fruit from our home base surrounding Calistoga, where fully ripe fruit offers soft tannins, black fruit profiles and approachability, alongside the firmer tannins evident in fruit from Diamond Mountain, offering great balance in the final assemblage and cuvée.
Cassis, redcurrants, fresh herbs, raspberries and red licorice. Medium-bodied with good savoryness to bolster the red berries and acidity crunch.
