(From 2012 Vintage) From intimate terrace dinners to after-work aperitifs, Sterling Vineyards shines anywhere. Our Sterling Vintner's Collection offers distinctive, hand-crafted varietal wines to be enjoyed every day. Many of our grapes come from our Paris Valley Ranch Vineyard near Monterey Bay, where the warm sun is tempered by cool coastal breezes and fog, extending the growing season for optimum varietal character and balance. This region's diverse climate and soils offer each grape variety the precise conditions it loves best. Winemaker Joe Kid produces Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and Zinfandel, crafting each wine to pair deliciously with a wide range of cuisines.
Deep ruby red, color, with big blackberry and blackberry pie aromas, as well as toasty oak and vanilla. Complex, with more subtle cherry-cola notes. On the palate are mouth filling cherry-berry tannins, which are round yet offer nice mouth feel and a long finish. Drink this with beef dishes and other entrees with richer sauces.
