Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel 2007

I am currently drinking the sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel
2007 and on the nose:
I am catching huckleberries some vanilla oak components and also nuances of spice along with the tobacco smell from a cigar box. It has a standard Zinfandel nose along with a few more interesting surprises.
While tasty sterling Zinfandel:
I'm enjoying bing and black cherry in the mid palate and it has a long finish with a bit of cigar box and also small amounts of cocoa on the cherry which translated throughout the whole palate. This is a very balanced wine, the alcohol doesn't rear it's ugly head throughout the whole process of drinking such a wine. I say buy it, try it, make your own assumption and get back to me, it's a great entry wine for people starting off in the world of zinfandel. Till then, Happy New Year.
