Sterling 2010 Platinum, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
This is the second release of Sterling Vineyards Platinum, considered their finest offering. A majority of the fruit comes from three distinct AVAs within Napa including about 1/3 from their Diamond Mountain Ranch. Rutherford and Yountville are the other two and every bit of it is prime! It's 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot aged 21 months in 90% new French oak barrels. Robert Parker scored it 91 points saying "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."

    Comments about Sterling 2010 Platinum, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley:

    This wine impressed from start to finish. Very classic nose of black cherry, cassis, cola and vanilla with hints of tar and rose petals. Very round and full on the palate with tannins remaining firm. The fruit carries long through the finish along with some cocoa notes.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game
