The 2014 Rodney Strong Sonoma County Merlot is lush with predominate notes of blackberries, black cherry, and plum with a hint of dried herbs. This wine is silky and voluptuous with soft tannins and finishes with a touch of dried cocoa and vanilla. The luscious dark fruit flavours are enhanced by aging in small French and American oak barrels.
Enjoy this Merlot with grilled vegetables, spaghetti, and meatballs or grilled Italian-style sausages.
88 Points - Wine Enthusiast Herbal and perfumed, this is a tannic, grippy and complex red, sourced from throughout the county. Peppercorn, cedar and chocolate-covered berries define the pleasant array of flavors.
