A Bordeaux blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Petite Sirah.
Our 2005 Sterling Vineyards SVR Reserve celebrates the synergy between Bordeaux-style grape varietals with an artistic blend focused on finesse. Winemaker Mike Westrick describes this wine as elegant, graceful and beautifully balanced, with seductive layers of complexity. The wine?s inviting aromas and opulent flavors fill your senses with ripe blackberries and black cherries. Nuances of mocha, cedar, toasty oak and violet spice the rich fruit expression then linger on the persistent finish, inviting you to take another sip. The wine is undeniably intense, with good weight on the palate. Fine-grain tannins softly structure the mouthfilling flavors.
