92 Points Wine Enthusiast: This is soft, ripe and delicious, in the cult style, with heady blackberry jam, chocolate and sweet, caramelized oak flavors. It’s thoroughly dry and really easy to like, with a certain dramatic impact. Drink soon.

Notes on the Sterling Vineyards Platinum 750ML 2009

Wine Maker Notes Living up to its name, our 2009 Platinum is the culmination of our finest grapes and state-of-the-art winemaking. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this classic Bordeaux-style blend has a big, inky-black profile led by distinct aromas of cocoa, espresso, toast and black currant. A bold weight of black-cherry fruit washes across the palate with unrelenting intensity. Mouth-coating tannins and caramel pastry notes extend into a long and satisfying finish.

Technical Notes Sterling Vineyards sources wines of exceptional quality from the staggering slopes of Diamond Mountain Ranch, the flat valley floor of Three Palms Vineyard, and many other diverse terroirs throughout Napa Valley and other select California regions. The great diversity of our vineyard sources allows us to cultivate fruit from a wide range of soils and microclimates, giving each wine the precise growing conditions that express true varietal character and terroir personality. Our single vineyards include the near-vertical slopes of our Diamond Mountain Ranch west of Calistoga and our famous Three Palms Vineyard, located at the mouth of Dutch Henry Canyon. Our single vineyard estates include Diamond Mountain Ranch and Three Palms Vineyard. These sites feature vastly different terroirs—Diamond Mountain Ranch has staggeringly steep slopes, while Three Palms, with its famous silhouette, stretches over the valley floor at the mouth of Dutch Henry Canyon. Both produce single-vineyard wines of great distinction.

Our Diamond Mountain Ranch lies west of the town of Calistoga, near the top of the Diamond Mountain American Viticultural Area (AVA). The ranch’s 120 acres range in elevation from 1,700 to 2,000 feet, climbing the steep northern face of the Mayacamas Mountains. Nearly vertical slopes, austere soils, and dry farming stress the vines planted here, and low-vigor volcanic soils provide minimal nutrition. The result? Small, intensely concentrated fruit clusters that make deeply pigmented, assertive wines with full body and rich tannins.

Located at the mouth of Dutch Henry Canyon, our Three Palms Vineyard was named for the three palm trees whose silhouettes stand out above the flat valley floor. Vines here take deep root in thin, well-draining soils that lie under a layer of volcanic stones washed down the canyon walls over centuries. The vineyard covers 74.5 acres of valley floor and is planted primarily to Merlot with small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec.

Food Pairing Pair this striking bold, well-balanced wine with roasted meats, risotto, or winter pastas.
