For a Pinot Noir, this medium bodied wine enjoys an alluring ruby color with crisp clarity. A cliche and timeless “red wine” red, it’s a table top eye pleaser, agreeable to the eyes before it ever reaches the palate. I must say I did not grasp the full depth of flavor nuances listed on the back of the bottle. I noted raspberry and cherry mingled in with earthy undertones, but overall I found myself repeatedly trying to ascertain the many flavors and aromas that unraveled with every sniff and sip. To me, while decidedly “berry”, this wine had overlapping and complex flavors. With a smooth taste and a great finish, my dad commented that he would love to pair the wine with pork or fish, and my husband observed it’s a great “conversation” wine.. you know, the bottle you pop open when you have a bunch of friends sitting around needing a beautiful stand alone wine to swirl in giant Bordeaux glasses and sip on through the evening. (And here we are back to me loving the “look” and color of the wine, haha.) Overall, it’s a great wine. I wouldn’t urge you to bend over backwards to order a case, however, if you see this wine in your local grocery or liquor store, don’t pass it up!

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Pinot Noir has silky cherry, plum, and rose character from grapes grown in cool Monterey County. Vibrant acidity balances the focused fruit flavors, and ten months of aging in French oak gave this wine charming vanilla nuances.

Black cherry and rich toffee aromas open the nose, followed by brambly berry flavors. The sweet scent of forest floor and rich cherry cobbler weave through the smooth and supple palate.

Offers a dark red fruit profile graced with toasty oak complexity. Black cherry and rich toffee aromas open the nose, followed by a brambly berry flavors. The sweet scent of forest floor and rich cherry cobbler weave through the smooth and supple palate. The finish is long and satisfying, with a spicy fruit intensity that extends toward a rewarding finale.

Located at the southern tip of Napa Valley, the vineyards have views of the San Pablo Bay and nearby San Francisco Bay. With this close proximity to the water, these vineyards are the first to get the fog and the last to get the sun, maintaining low temperatures for a long, slow ripening.
