With poise and style, the Sterling Vintner’s Collection 2014 Pinot Noir expresses the quality of this vintage. “The growing season was stellar and the wine shows a sophistication that comes from a slow ripening process,” explains Winemaker Monica Belavic. At its core, the wine has fresh cherry-berry fruit with a sweet earthiness and a hint of violets. French oak lends subtle vanilla and clove spices. The flavors are deep and juicy, balancing bold fruit, bright acids and supple tannins. It’s an easy choice for almost any occasion. Try it with soft, ripened cheeses, grilled salmon or roasted chicken.
