Rodney Strong Vineyards Sonoma County 2013 Merlot

The 2013 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 flavors are enhanced by aging in small French and American oak barrels. Enjoy this Merlot over the next two to four years with grilled vegetables, spaghetti and meatballs or grilled Italian-style sausages.
