Carolyn gave me the bottle to drink. Her and Joleen didn't like it. It was pretty damn good.

Had a mispairing of this wine with rosemary chicken. It's good. Needs a much better pairing like a prime rib or red meat for certain. Chicken was awesome however.

It's a steal for a Napa Cab in a steakhouse. Nice cherry on the nose. Soft tannins with nice finish. Like it!

Very full and smooth, light acid and a hint of blackberry.

Boasting notes of pepper, red fruit, vanilla and some cocoa/dark chocolate. Flavor profile and medium body reminiscent of Chilean terroir. A nice surprise for both Sterling and the Merlot varietal in general.

The Sterling Merlot never disappoints. Rich and full. Great with steak.
