Sterling Merlot Central Coast Vintner's Collection 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sterling Vintner's Collection Merlot has velvety cherry and plum fruit character laced with hints of rose and cocoa. Notes of toasty oak from barrel aging weave through the aromas and linger on the fruity finish. The supple tannins and spicy fruit character make this wine remarkably versatile with food.

Straightforward, with pleasant raspberry and green tea notes, it strikes a good balance between sweet fruit and juicy acidity.

Zesty but lean in style, with dried cherry and roasted sage aromas that lead to modest red currant and spicy herb flavors. Drink now through 2013.

A dark, earthy wine that will suprise you. The rich, deep flavors of spiced plum, blackberry and mocha last through the lingering finish. Fully dry, it also has some sturdy tannins that will stand up well to roast meats.

Plum, currant and chocolate flavors have good depth, with lingering herbal and toasty oak notes underscored by firm structure. Drink now through 2007.

Shows concentrated aromas of black cherry, ripe juicy plums, dark chocolate, vanilla and lightly toasted oak. Equally focused flavors of jammy red fruit and ripe cherries and root beer, with a lingering finish of chocoalte-dipped cherries and sweet oak.

Drinks a bit heavy and thick, but there's no denying the juicy flavors. Plums, sweet blackberries, cherries and herbs flood the mouth, leading to some astringency from tannins.
