Sterling Vineyards Merlot 2004, Napa Valley, CA - $25



AS brought this wine to share during driveway drinking last night. It retails for around $25/bottle online.

Aroma - black plums
Taste - dark fruit, moderate tannins, velvety

This wine is a testament to cellaring, or keeping your wine for a few years before drinking. It's really velvety-smooth at this point, and it's not that old. I think I'm going to need to try to keep some wines instead of drinking them all when I buy them! AS, thanks so much for sharing both this and the Groth CS 2006!
