2016 Sterling Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga
We were lucky enough to snag an allocation of this winery exclusive reserve. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sings a song of blackberry pie and chocolate cherries with plenty of classic crème de cassis. Mouth-coating flavor, a medium-to-full bodied palate, and layers of earth and fruit lead to a silky finish meant to be enjoyed now and on repeat for the next five years.
Aromas and flavors of blueberries, blackberries and hints of violets follow through to a medium to full body, firm, silky tannins and a caressing finish. Drink or hold.WA91
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Calistoga Reserve is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple in color, it sings of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and chocolate-covered cherries with touches of mocha, dried mint, tilled soil and moss-covered tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black fruit and earthy layers with a firm, grainy frame, finishing with lovely vibrancy. 1,070 cases were made.
