The Sterling Vineyards winemaking team believes that our wines should express true varietal character. We craft each wine with this in mind, choosing gentle techniques tailored to bring out the aromas and flavors that each Napa grape variety develops in the terroir it likes best. The resulting wines have exceptional quality that shines anywhere, with intriguing complexity that brings out the best in a wide variety of cuisines.
Dark brambly berries, ripe black cherry, violets and cinnamon pair up with vanilla, mocha and sweet oak. The intensity on the palate holds its weight and fullness through the long, smooth finish. This is a Merlot that drinks like a Cabernet Sauvignon. The rich body and round, structured tannins will pair well with roasted meats.
