Food Pairings for Sterling Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley
Merlot is a benchmark varietal for Sterling, and we take great pride in this wine. It was fermented in stainless steel tanks. The juice was pumped over the skins 2-3 times daily, then pressed at near dryness. Keeping the lots separate, we put the wine to barrel, some prior to malolactic fermentation, some after. After 12 months of aging, the various lots were blended and bottled. A dense, dark plum in color, the wine offers aromas of black cherry, raspberry, toasty oak, nutmeg, and cloves. Luscious flavors of blackberries, cherries, cocoa, cedar, and vanilla lead to a full, well-textured finish. The Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Merlot pairs beautifully with New York steak, lamb chops and grilled Portobello mushrooms.
