Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Sterling opens with faint black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with intertwined boysenberry and oak. We also detected some hints of red plum and cinnamon as well. The finish is dry and its refined tannins are nicely prolonged. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with a filet mignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: In 2015, Iridium exhibits the purity of fruit expression, polished tannins and rich texture that are quickly becoming the signature of this bold and opulent wine. Classic Napa Cabernet notes of mocha, cassis and dark fruits are accented with oak spice, caramel toffee and layered flavors that linger, leaving a lasting impression. Built to last, the wine will reveal its inner personality over many years to come.
