2008 Sterling Napa Valley Merlot
With its classic texture and refined profile, our Napa Merlot references old-world style, balancing fresh, vibrant fruit and earthy tobacco cues. The rich aromas have a dominant spice overlay, with sweet musky notes, gingerbread spices and red stone fruits. The palate is fresh and clean, with bright cherries flanked by cedar and tobacco. A fine layer of tannins extends through the finish.
