The Sterling Vintner’s Collection 2013 Meritage is the result of the special synergy that is formed when everything comes together perfectly – in this case: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Layers of dark fruit, cassis, leather and rich earth weave together to create a complex and juicy wine. Ripe tannins and oak aging lend depth and texture, highlighted by vanilla and mocha spice. Balanced flavors and a long, lifted finish make this a perfect wine to enjoy with food. Pair with anything from herb-roasted chicken to grilled steaks and hearty pastas.
