Sterling Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Rich and powerful, our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon unleashes ripe cassis, blackberry and dark fruit character. ?This wine is built for the cellar,? says Winemaker Mike Westrick. ?Its classic varietal expression is intensely focused and concentrated, with muscular tannins that carry the fruit effortlessly right through the long finish.? Asian spices (especially Chinese five-spice), olive and warm oak tones heighten the aromas and permeate the full, expansive flavors. This wine?s firm?but not aggressive?tannins and deep fruit flavors stand up to the richest entrées.
