Our 2010 Platinum delivers rich elegance cloaked in a dark profile. Opulent, brooding and incredibly black in every sense. Blackberry, black currant and black cherry, deep and layered with baker’s chocolate, tar, toast, clove and espresso. The intensity of flavors effortlessly unifies the palate, joined by mouth-coating tannins that support and lift the long finish. When experiencing this wine, it reminds me of stepping into a dark, wood-paneled library that envelopes your senses with its presence.
"Under the Sterling Vineyards Black Label, the 2010 Proprietary Red Platinum is a blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Petit Verdot and Malbec. It offers an impressive bouquet of spring flowers, blackberries, cassis, asphalt and a hint of charcoal. Rich, full textured and impressive, it is one of the most encouraging wines I have seen from Sterling. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years. "
