Sterling Vineyards offers an array of distinct and beautifully crafted wines. Sterling Reserve wines show the depth, strength and incredible diversity of the Napa Valley. These handcrafted, limited-production wines are passion projects for the Sterling winemaking and winegrowing teams, who seek the best Napa appellations and notable vineyards to craft exceptional wines. A Sterling Reserve wine represents the richest, most complex and compelling varietal expression.
The 2013 Yates Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies the elegance and age-worthiness that makes Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon so prized. On the nose, an explosion of black cherry and dark bramble fruits burst forth enlivened by distinct graphite minerality and clove spice notes. These rich, exuberant notes continue on to the palate framed by firm baker's chocolate-inflected tannins leading to a long finish.
Director of Winemaking Harry Hansen was raised in nearby Sonoma County. “One of my earliest memories of wine was the gallon jug of red wine that we always had at home. I would go with my father to a local winery, maybe in Kenwood or Healdsburg, to refill that jug and chit-chat with the winery proprietors. The aromas of those wines were always something attractive, somehow mysterious, but always memorable.”
Harry joined Sterling Vineyards and relocated to Napa Valley just before the 2011 Harvest. “The opportunity to join such a respected Napa Valley winery is exciting and a fantastic next step in my winemaking career. Sterling Vineyards is making some wonderful wines, and I look forward to taking that next step up in quality and reputation.”
