Sterling Vineyards Vintner’s Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Store Pickup and Local Delivery Only

$27.55

The fruit for our Cabernet Sauvignon comes from several of our estate vineyards located along the coast. Each of these vineyards imparts its unique set of characteristics. Our Paris Valley Ranch Vineyard in southern Monterey County has sunny days and cool nights, producing bright fruit with good acidity and lots of tannins. The warmer climate of our Red Hills Vineyard in southern Paso Robles and our estate vineyard in San Benito yield riper, darker characteristics and round tannins that give an excellent balance and richness to the wine. To craft an expressive and complex Cabernet Sauvignon, we began with fermentation in stainless steel tanks, using frequent pump-over to achieve maximum extraction of tannins and flavors. Following primary fermentation, the grapes from our San Benito vineyards went through extended maceration, which accentuated the rich, spicy fruits and plump, integrated tannins. To lend sweet, toasty vanilla tones and build structure, we aged the wine for 12 months in American oak barrels. We blended small amounts of Merlot and Syrah to fill out the midpalate and add complexity and depth.

This classic Cabernet Sauvignon flaunts everything we love about the varietal with an approachability that pairs well with a variety of foods, including pasta Bolognese or herb-roasted pork loin.

Description

Grapes for our Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and Shiraz wines are harvested at full ripeness and brought to the winery in small boxes. After careful hand-sorting, grapes move through the crusher-destemmer machine and on into oak tanks—or in some cases stainless steel tanks—and are inoculated with native yeasts for primary fermentation. After primary fermentation, the wines are transferred to oak barrels. Here the wines undergo malolactic fermentation in which harsher malic acid is converted to softer lactic acid. Following malolactic fermentation, wines are gently racked from barrel to barrel, leaving their sediment and lees behind. Depending on the varietal, vineyard, and vintage, winemakers give the wines 12 to 24 months of aging in carefully selected oak barrels. Barrels range in type of oak, in age, and in levels of toast—and each variable imparts different characters that interact with and complement a wine’s aromas and flavors. In 2008, we finished a new state-of-the-art winemaking facility to give our Reserve wines kid-glove treatment. The new 10,000-case facility located across from our caves features the finest red winemaking techniques, including whole-berry fermentation, barrel spinning for cap management, and much more. The resulting wines will reflect their terroir with a bold yet elegant intensity.
