Sterling Merlot Napa 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The Wine News Review Very pungent scents of plum, cherry, moist earth, graphite and coffee with lightening vanilla notes. Deep, supple flavors of blackberry, black cherry, minerals and pencil. Sweet finish softens the big tannins. Wine Tasting Notes This lush, dark ruby wine reveals an array of spice and fruit aromas such as black cherry, raspberry, black pepper and cinnamon, mingled with cocoa, mineral and toasty vanilla notes. The palate is rich and concentrated with strong cherry flavors, firm tannins and a fruity finish. Beautifully balanced and full-bodied, this wine will age for many years. It pairs nicely with hearty meat dishes like grilled filet mignon or roast rack of lamb and with savory, hard cheeses like Dry Jack.

Sterling Vineyards:
Our iconic winery is perched high above the town of Calistoga on a mid-valley hill. Its stark architectural beauty, state-of-the-art winemaking facility, and panoramic views of Napa Valley from the rooftop deck have attracted visitors from all 50 states for over 30 years.
