Winemaker Harry Hansen
Los vinos de Sterling Vineyards expresan un verdadero carácter varietal — ese conjunto de aromas y sabores que las uvas desarrollan cuando crecen en el terroir que más les conviene. Nos esforzamos por destacar la personalidad única de cada vino y entregar la calidad que ha deleitado a los amantes del vino durante décadas. En 1964, nos convertimos en terratenientes de nuestros primeros viñedos en Calistoga. Esta mezcla es un tributo a todos los grandes viñedos con los que trabajamos ahora en Napa Valley, desde el distrito de carneros en el sur hasta los alcances del norte de Calistoga.
 

Vineyard Notes

We sourced our grapes from select vineyards throughout Napa Valley, building complexity and layers from multiple sites. We placed a special emphasis on cooler climate sub-AVAs, such as Yountville and Oak Knoll, and balanced it with fruit from the warmer Calistoga AVA. The cooler vineyards offer a bright clarity of fruit, with vibrant notes of rhubarb and licorice that persist through the palate. Calistoga provides complementary dark black fruits and rich, jammy character.

Winemaking Notes

Small-berried Cabernet Sauvignon provides the wine’s core, giving it depth of dark fruit character and structure. Merlot from the Yountville AVA in the heart of the Napa Valley adds bright red plum notes and heightened aromas. And finally, the fusion of Petite Verdot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Syrah brushes the wine with hints of violet and spice.
