Sterling Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2002

Member Review by Healy:

Not the greatest merlot, but does the job well. Some black fruit nose, maybe some tannins on the end, not much of a finish.

Despite an initial offering of ripe, fleshy plum and black cherry, it turns simpler at midpalate before an earthy, waxy, cedary edge works into the fold. Drink now. 99,000 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2002 Sterling Merlot 750ml

Shows concentrated aromas of black cherry, ripe plums, dark chocolate, vanilla and lightly toasted oak. Equally focused flavors of jammy red fruit and ripe cherries and root beer, with a lingering finish of chocolate-dipped cherries and sweet oak.

Drinks a bit heavy and thick, but therersquo;s no denying the juicy flavors. Plums, sweet blackberries, cherries and herbs flood the mouth, leading to some astringency from tannins.
