Sterling Merlot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The Sterling Team has been turning out solid Merlot for decades. And always at a very fair price. This elegant 2011 Napa Valley red offers great style and complexity with harmonious aromas of black cherry, berries, allspice and cola on the nose. On the palate, balanced flavors of red fruit, caramel, chocolate and oak with smooth, luxurious texture and a long finish.

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Merlot combines the classic offerings of this varietal in a smooth, complex, fruit-intensive style. Bright aromas of black cherry and plum hold through the senses as they join ripe, chewy tannins on the palate. The fruit is complemented by ample caramel, mocha and toasty oak from extensive aging in new American oak barrels. With layered depths and silky body, this versatile wine is appropriate for many occasions.
