Rodney Strong Merlot 2011
Rodney Strong was Sonoma's 13th bonded winery back in 1959, and the Klein family has owned it ever since 1989. They strive for sustainable agriculture and thus became Sonoma County's first carbon-neutral winery. There's terrific balance, structure, supple texture and length on the finish of this wine. Alluring aromas of mocha-coffee on the nose along with rich black fruit. Pleasantly surprising vibrant acidity for food. Plush black plums and coffee on the finish. Try is with braised beef. This warm-climate Merlot finishes with vanilla spice, dark berry and fig. Pair with: beef, cheese, poultry, borsch (beet soup), quesadillas. Drink: 2014-2018. Score - 91.
