(From 1995 Vintage) Inky ruby purple. Classic black cherry and chocolate notes mix with anise and roasted coffee bean aromas in the nose. A dense, chalky, chewy, young hillside Cabernet with fruit, power, and elegance. This wine will age well, and yet drinks well at this point, too.
Wine BuyerThe Sterling Vintner's Collection Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the intense character of Monterey fruit in a full and balanced wine. Distinctive aromas of ripe blackberry, pepper, toast and hints of smoked meats are followed by subtle notes of light chocolate mint and vanilla. The palate offers concentrated black fruits, toffee and dark chocolate powder.
Wine & SpiritsJuicy berry flavors run smoothly through this wine, which is all about luscious quality. It's good juice, clean, soft and plump, easy to drink on its own or with anything meaty.
