This delicious limited production wine is made entirely of fruit from a section of Diamond Mountain, located directly below Sterling Winery's famed vineyard in the Napa Valley. Red volcanic soils of this steep hillside vineyard produce low yields of intensely flavored grapes defined by rich cassis character.
Blended with 12% Cabernet Franc for enhanced smoothness. Fermentation in small half-ton lots allowed for extra care to produce an excellent Cabernet Sauvignon with added depth and dimension. This wine was aged in small French Oak barrels and gently fined by egg whites. It has good body, with aromas of cherry and sweet oak.
