Description

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Dark Red is a decadent blend of two of the most alluring and rich red varieties: Merlot and Petit Sirah. The deep garnet-colored wine opens with vibrant aromas of black plum, blackberry and warm cardamom spice. The velvety-textured palate is expansive with intense flavors of baked boysenberry, mocha and layers of mouthwatering juicy fruit. The well-integrated oak influence gives toasted vanillin notes and adds to the lengthy, flavorful finish.

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
