Sterling 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Sterling Vineyards has a long history of producing outstanding wines in the Napa Valley. Ever since Peter Newton purchased vineyards in Calistoga and started planting Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which at the time was radical, they've turned out world class selections. Now the winery is an icon, situated way up on the hill with a sky gondola that rides you up there above the valley floor. And they're still turning out world class wine like this 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are sourced from their best growers throughout the Napa Valley. It's a complex blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Syrah, 2% Malbec and 2% other red varietals. Each vineyard lot is vinified individually to bring forward its unique profile and strengths. To achieve the rich color and aromatics, the grapes are cold soaked for two days, followed by fermentation. Frequent pump-overs allowed plenty of contact between the juice and the skins for maximum extraction of flavors. The wine is aged 16 months in French, American and Hungarian oak and the final blend is made prior to bottling. It shows a dark, spicy profile that is the hallmark of Napa while the cooler conditions of the season left an imprint of peppery spices, dusted cocoa and a bright finish. The palate shows concentration and weight, opening with rich, voluminous boysenberry fruits and baking spice. Chocolate tannins frame the red fruit finish, touched a hint of caramel toast.
