2014 Sterling Vintner’s Collection Meritage

sterling-vintners-collection-meritageFrom the winemaker – “A ‘whole greater than the sum of its parts,’ the 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.

2013 Alamos Malbec

Alamos-MalbecThis wine has a full structure and a long, lingering finish. It has a spice and vanilla oak characteristic to it with floral notes which makes it a very drinkable wine now, or for years to come.

From the winemaker – “A classically Argentine wine, our Alamos Malbec blends the deeply concentrated plum flavors of the country’s signature variety – Malbec – with small portions of Syrah and Bonarda to add dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Well-integrated hints of brown spice and vanilla contribute layers of complexity.”

This wine pairs nicely with Chicken wings, barbecue, pate’s like chicken, duck or veal liver. It also goes with Hard cheeses like Asiago, Parmesan and Romano or semi-hard cheeses like Cheddar, Fontina, Gouda or Swiss.

From the Wine Advocate– “The 2009 Malbec Picada 15 (a vineyard designation) was primarily aged in tank with 10% of the wine spending six months in oak. Dark ruby-colored, it delivers a spicy, black cherry and black raspberry perfume. This is followed by a medium-bodied, easygoing wine with ample fruit and no hard edges.”

2009 Ranch 32 Cabernet Sauvignon

This great cabernet is made up of 96%Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. After a 10-day fermentation in stainless tanks, the wine was aged with a combination of 65% French and 35% American oak to round out and soften the rich, black fruit flavors.

From the winemaker – “Our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon wows with a rich, juicy core of concentrated blackberry and black raspberry flavors framed by perfectly integrated tannins.  Strong yet supple, the complex layers unfold into a long, savory finish.”

Pairs well with cornish game hens, duck or turkey prepared in rich, hearty or heavy sauces or hard cheeses like Parmigiano or Romano and firm cheeses like Cheddar.
