With beautifully integrated ripe fruit notes, velvety tannins and spicy oak, the 2006 Sterling
Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is enticingly approachable. The symphony of
Cabernet Sauvignon flavors—blackberry, black cherry, cassis and violet—comes from
vineyards spanning the entire length of Napa Valley. The opulent, dark-fruit aromas and
flavors are laced with complex nuances of cedar, spice and new leather. Smooth, supple tannins structure the wine and contribute to its plush texture on the palate. Toasty oak, from 12
months of barrel aging, adds warm vanilla tones to the lingering finish.
