94 Points - Wine Enthusiast"Beautiful now, with decanting, due to the generous fruit flavors and the way the oak shows them off. Dry and smooth, it brims with blackberry, cherry, red and black currant, blueberry, cocoa, anise and sandalwood and smoky flavors that go on and on. Should age, too. Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot and Petit Verdot."92 Points - The Wine News"Lively purple hue with a fuchsia rim. Fresh plum, blueberry and vanilla aromas. Rich layers of blackberry, toasted oak and mineral. Stylish, lengthy finish with plenty of promising black fruit."Winemaker's Notes:Graceful and beautifully balanced, the 2006 Sterling Vineyards SVR offers spicy deep plum and berry aromas laced with licorice, cedar, violet, dried herbs and Asian five-spice. The rich, concentrated cassis, caramel and toffee flavors are expansive and weighty. Fine-grain tannins softly structure the opulent flavors, while spicy cloves notes from barrel aging linger on the long, fruit-imbued finish. As one of our top-tier reserve wines, the SVR celebrates the synergy between Bordeaux-style grape varietals with an artistic blend focused on finesse and seductive layers of fruit expression.
