Sterling Vineyards Merlot Napa Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Wine News Review Very pungent scents of plum, cherry, moist earth, graphite and coffee with lightening vanilla notes. Deep, supple flavors of blackberry, black cherry, minerals and pencil. Sweet finish softens the big tannins. Wine Tasting Notes This lush, dark ruby wine reveals an array of spice and fruit aromas such as black cherry, raspberry, black pepper and cinnamon, mingled with cocoa, mineral and toasty vanilla notes. The palate is rich and concentrated with strong cherry flavors, firm tannins and a fruity finish. Beautifully balanced and full-bodied, this wine will age for many years. It pairs nicely with hearty meat dishes like grilled filet mignon or roast rack of lamb and with savory, hard cheeses like Dry Jack.

Wine Tasting NotesA rich purple-violet hue, the wine shows a rich, deep fruit concentration and jamminess. Hints of spice and toasty oak reflect vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and cedar. The wine is bright and clear with a long full textured finish.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Sterling Vintner's Collection Merlot is a clear ruby color with aromas of ripe blackberry, jammy red fruit, vanilla, nutmeg, dark chocolate, and toasty oak. On the palate are flavors of rich black fruits; ripe black cherries, blackberries and a lingering finish of fine grain tannins.

Aged in small oak barrels, this Merlot is the essence of approachable, satisfying red wine. The oak imparts subtle spicy vanilla notes on the nose, while the palate is kept happy with plenty of dark fruit flavors. This goes with almost anything.
