Sterling's Platinum is the best of their best. With fruit coming from the best blocks from their best estate vineyards, this is exceptional. The wine exhibits a rich texture with layers of complexity. Classic characteristics of Napa Valley Cab shine through on this one: cassis, dark bold fruit and hints of mocha. The palate is accentuated with notes of spice, black pepper and framed with supple tannin. Excellent.

James Suckling

A floral cabernet with pressed violets, fresh blackcurrants, hay and black licorice. The palate has a pretty, herbal edge to it, as well as firm tannins, bright acidity and a medium-chewy finish. Drink now or hold.
