Our iconic winery is perched high above the town of Calistoga on a mid-valley hill. Its stark architectural beauty, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, and panoramic views of Napa Valley from the rooftop deck have attracted visitors from all 50 states for over 30 years.
Good blended wine with character of vanilla and berries. Rich, juicy texture, hints of old oak.
This has been my favorite wine for a few years now. I have travelled many miles to purchase it (rather than order it online). I can enjoy it with any food and on any occasion.
I like this wine very much for an everyday wine. It is afforable and an all around good wine to serve a large number of people at a good price.
Remarkably good Bordeaux style california wine. This one was a surprise to me. I have purchased bottles of California Bordeaux types for $20-$30 per bottle that have not been as enjoyable as the Sterling Vintner's Collection Meritage 2009. I'm going to put a case of this away just to surprise some of my friends with a real treat at a very reasonable price. It was almost like being in the business again and being able to buy at the wholesale prices I used to pay when I managed one of the best wine and cheese outlets in Western Michigan in the 1970s. Exceptional value.
