Sterling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) In the glass, our Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon shows dark, inky purple depths that bloom with brambly black fruit, blueberry pie and layers of toasted oak, nutmeg and clove. The signature Rutherford fruit shines across the midpalate as the smooth entry develops a brooding underbelly of rich, dark, juicy fruit. Dried cherries, dark cocoa and sweet hazelnut coffee melt through the middle, joined by barrel nuances that lend tannins and structure without overpowering the fruit. This well-balanced, well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon will hold up to hardy roasted or braised meats and rich sauce dishes.
