1986 Sterling Vineyards Merlot

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1997 Vintage) Oak aromas of cream, vanilla and clove overlap with black cherry fruit, which continues to show on the palate. This Merlot should mellow and develop nicely with cellar age.

    A magnum from 1986. Drinking well, not going to last much longer. A lovely wine to enjoy with friends!

    (From 2005 Vintage) A dense, dark plum in color, the wine offers aromas of black cherry, raspberry, toasty oak, nutmeg, and cloves. Luscious flavors of blackberries, cherries, cocoa, cedar, and vanilla lead to a full, well-textured finish.
