Sterling Vintner's Collection Merlot
Origin: (majority from Monterey County) California, U.S.A.
Producer's Notes: 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.
The Merlot was aged for 11 months in a combination of French and American oak to integrate flavors, soften tannins and enhance texture of the final wine.
