Dark purple in color.

Nose of black fruits and was ripe. Tastes very fruit forward but not unpleasant, mid palate had a bit of mint I think that I wish would persist for a bit longer. Medium length finish only despite a lot of flavor up front. Occasionally thought that there as a bit of a bitter/coffee end, but only every so slightly.

Hi Engineer, Is the 2002 Sterling the Vinters Collection or the Napa bottling? I've had the 2001 Vinters Collection and the 1999 Sterling Napa there's about a $8-$10 difference in price but a major difference in taste. Also did you like it?

TO nice was definitely the Vinters which was about a $10 bottle of wine. I've had the Napa which I think is a much better offering but for a bit more money of course.
