Sterling Vineyards Pinot Noir Vintner's Collection 2014 750ML    
Sku: 37210

Sterling Vineyards sources wines of exceptional quality from the staggering slopes of Diamond Mountain Ranch, the flat valley floor of Three Palms Vineyard, and many other diverse terroirs throughout Napa Valley and other select California regions. The Sterling Vineyards winemaking team believes that our wines should express true varietal character. We craft each wine with this in mind, choosing gentle techniques tailored to bring out the aromas and flavors that each grape variety develops in the terroir it likes best. The resulting wines have exceptional quality that shines with intriguing complexity.

Tasting notes
The Sterling Vintner's Collection Pinot Noir has silky cherry, plum, and rose character from grapes grown in cool Monterey County. Vibrant acidity balances the focused fruit flavors, and ten months of aging in French oak gave this wine charming vanilla nuances.

Wine maker notes
We sourced the majority of our Pinot Noir from Edna Valley, which we like for its distinctively cool climate, ideal for this varietal. Near the town of San Luis Obispo, this valley has a unique east–west alignment that allows fog to funnel in from the Pacific. This results in temperate days and a long growing season, producing Pinot Noir with ripe tannins and aromatic black-cherry notes. The fruit from Monterey carries a more brambly minerality, adding balance and complexity. One of the most difficult wines to make, Pinot Noir is fickle and demanding, requiring delicate handling and careful attention. After the fruit was harvested and brought to the winery, it was allowed a three-day cold soak, which prevented the onset of fermentation and allowed the gentle extraction of bright fruit flavors and dark colors. We then fermented the wine in stainless steel tanks, incorporating the skins and juice with regular pump-over. To knit together the flavors and impart complexity and structure, we barrel aged the wine for seven months.

Food pairing
The forward fruit and supple weight of this wine pair well with chicken Marsala, wild mushroom risotto or young pecorino cheese.
