Winemaker's Notes

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.

Toasty oak, from 12 months of barrel aging, adds warm vanilla tones to the lingering finish.
