Sterling Vintner’s Collection Shiraz (2005)

sterling-vinters-collection-shiraz-central-coast-2006This Sterling Shiraz is our choice for this Wednesday evening. We have been so, so busy and have neglected our blog terribly for the first time since we started this. Tonight is the night I get back on track. We actually opened this bottle last night (after finishing a bottle of red wine that was a blend of grenache and shiraz). Tonight, we are finishing this Central Coast wine. It is lovely. This is a big and fruity quaff, with blackberry, cherry, and vanilla attributes. The finish is caramel and oak.

For dinner, I am simply heating up leftovers — a stew with sausage, chicken, potatoes, green beans, saurkraut and chicken broth. It may not sound good, but it is savory and delicious!

By the way, our son Tony is in Chicago waiting to pick up his Visa so that he can travel to South Korea for his new job. I can’t imagine how much I will miss him!

    Just curious to see what others thought about this wine. First tried it about a year and a half ago. It’s not sold in my home state so when I travel, I look for it. Just received a few bottles, 2006, for my birthday. Am looking forward to seeing if it is as good as the other vintages, 2004 and 2005. My daughter is in California and I hope to visit the vineyard somday.
