Winemaker's Notes

Sterling Vineyards' 2002 SVR was created from among the finest lots of Bordeaux varieties of this vintage, selected to display the highest intensity of flavor and varietal concentration. SVR has a decade-long (1993) history at Sterling as our premier blended Bordeaux-style wine.The wine is a deep ruby hue, with aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, plum jam and hints of black pepper. On the palate, it shows ripe black cherries and blackberries, with accents of dark chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg derived from aging in fine oak barrels (45% new). Soft and rich tannins leave a lingering, satisfying finish. The wine is a beautiful complement to roasted red meats, pastas made with a rich game sauce, and aged aromatic cheeses such as Dry Jack.
