Sterling SVR Reserve Napa Valley 2004
The 2004 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 over a decade-long history at Sterling as their premier blended Bordeaux-style wine.
The wine is a deep ruby hue, with rich aromas of black licorice, black cherry, toasty oak, new leather and briar. On the palate, this soft, approachable wine shows ripe Bing cherry notes accented with hints of toasty oak and vanilla. Silky, supple tannins leave a lingering finish. In the tradition of fine Bordeaux blends, this is an approachable, food-friendly wine.
