Winemaker Notes

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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Sterling Vineyards, Napa Valley, California
2010 Platinum
Sterling Vineyards was born in the 1960s, a time when creativity and entrepreneurial spirit abounded, especially in California. In 1964, Peter Newton, once a paper broker in England, purchased 70 acres of land in Calistoga and became a Napa Valley winemaker. He planted grapes others did not, bottled varietals others did not, and built a dramatic winery with an aerial tramway. His innovations put Sterling Vineyards into the public eye and helped establish the Napa Valley as a premier travel destination.

When Newton began planting his estate, Cabernet Sauvignon was the preferred variety. He planted the esteemed Cabernet, but his decision to also plant Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot was a bold move. His Merlot vines were the first significant planting of that variety in the Napa Valley. Newton saw potential in the soft, velvety Merlot fruit, and in 1969 he took a chance by releasing California's first vintage-dated Merlot. This decision flew in the face of traditional standards, which held that Merlot was merely a blending grape, and forever changed the perception of red wine. People started to enter a restaurant and ask for a glass of Merlot!

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
