The Sterling Vintner’s Collection Merlot boasts vivid aromas of fresh mixed-berry jam, red cherry, milk chocolate and baked spice. The wine is round and with good weight and generous flavors of blackberry bramble, sweet toasted oak and mocha. The wine is full-bodied with great concentration, silky tannins and a lengthy finish.
90 POINTS – WINE SPECTATOR
“Plush and well-spiced, with sinewy power to the dried red currant, plum and raspberry flavors. Notes of slate and hot stone show on the chiseled finish. Drink now through 2022.” – Wine Spectator, August 2019.
