Sterling Vineyards sources their Napa Valley wines from 14 diverse vineyards that span 1200 acres of prime growing area, from the southern Carneros District to Diamond Mountain Ranch up north near the town of Calistoga. A wide range of growing conditions allows them to cultivate each kind of wine grape in the precise terroir that enhances its truest varietal expression-for the impeccable taste Sterling Vineyards is famous for.
Merlot is a benchmark varietal for Sterling Vineyards. Bright ruby in color, this lovely wine offers aromas of ripe black cherries, raspberries and cedar. Luscious fruit flavors of blackberries and cherries accented by a touch of toasty oak lead to a long, silky finish.
Enjoy this wine paired with grilled New York steak, roast lamb and aged cheeses. The smooth, silky tannins make it a good match for rich chocolate desserts as well.
