Sterling Vineyards Carneros Pinot Noir
The bright acidity and gentle tannins of this fine Pinot can take guests from appetizers right into the main meal, pairing with a cornucopia of dishes on the Thanksgiving table.
Sterling Vintners Collection Aromatic White
The explosion of intense fruit and floral aromas in this wine stand up well to the equally intense flavors to appetizers containing ingredients such as blue cheese and sweet apricot. This wine offers a refreshing sip as a counterpoint to the creaminess of the cheese and the soft chew of dried apricots.
