Sterling Vintner's Collection Merlot 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

A Bordeaux-inspired blend with a California touch, our Sterling Vintner's Collection Meritage combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec into a friendly, fruit-forward wine with captivating complexity. Aromas of fresh cherries and summer plums greet the senses, followed by a rich descent into dark red fruit and cedar spice on the palate. Flavors maintain their juicy texture, joined by supple tannins and hints of oak spices. All-around enjoyable, this wine can be paired with a variety of dishes, from Spanish tapas to American barbecue.

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Merlot combines the classic offerings of this varietal in a smooth, complex, fruit-intensive style. Bright aromas of black cherry and plum hold through the senses as they join ripe, chewy tannins on the palate. The fruit is complemented by ample caramel, mocha and toasty oak from extensive aging in new American oak barrels. With layered depths and silky body, this versatile wine is appropriate for many occasions.
