Member Review by Sharon Doolittle:

A dinner guest brought a bottle of this wine for my birthday. I usually like more robust reds, but this was delicious!

Pretty good wine. Has good fruity flavor and aroma but nothing special. Good for price.

Bright ruby red in color, the 2007 Pinot Noir opens with vibrant aromas of raspberries and cherries with the slightest suggestion of dried herbs, apricots and toasty vanilla. On the palate, the allure of Pinot Noir unfolds with a smooth finesse and attractive burst of juicy red currant and cherry. It has a solid fruit core, good mid-palate and smooth finish that pairs nicely with roasted chicken, herb-rubbed pork tenderloin or wild mushroom pasta.

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Pinot Noir is a clear deep ruby, with complex, vibrant varietal aromas of briar fruit and ripe black cherries, with hints of vanilla. The fruit jumps out of the glass, with big black cherry flavors from entry to finish. The tannins are soft and there is a resonant touch of earth in the lingering finish.
