Sterling Vineyards Merlot 2010
A blend of four varietals, our Meritage combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot in a layered and complex wine. The intensity of fruit begins on the nose, with vivid cherry, plum and berry aromas. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate the palate, providing a full-bodied backbone of juicy, concentrated fruit, cedar spices and sturdy tannins. Petit Verdot and Malbec lend depth with supporting red-fruit and spice flavors, joined by sweet mocha and vanilla notes from the oak aging.
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.

External Reviews for Sterling Vineyards Merlot
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.
