A 93-point stunner according to James Suckling, this Calistoga Cabernet is a whimsical blend of plum, blackberry leaf, bitter chocolate, tobacco, and hazelnut. As you sip, you might even catch a hint of wild strawberry. Bursting with full-bodied flavor and velvety tannins, it's the perfect partner for an enchanting evening.
This captivating 2017 vintage is not only high in quality but also showcases the tremendous concentration of flavors, highly saturated color, and complexity that come from small-berried grapes. With flavors of black cherry, black currant, and Kirsch dancing on your palate, you'll be swept away by notes of vanilla, caramel, and mint.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from Calistoga's exceptional vineyards, where warm days give way to cool nights, allowing the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to ripen slowly and preserve their freshness and balance. Hand-harvested and aged for 18 months in a mix of French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted with precision and love.
So, go on and treat yourself to a bottle of Sterling Vineyards 2017 Reserve Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon from The Wine Event. Share it with friends, or keep it as your own little secret. Either way, you'll be sipping on a playful and unforgettable wine experience. Cheers! 🎉🍷🥳
