Rodney Strong Estate Vineyards 2012 Knotty Vines Zinfandel (Sonoma County) California - USA
Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $20.89 + tax
Date Tasted: May 16th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Hits you in the face, as many Zins do, with a powerful nose of puréed dark berry fruits, sweet peppercorn, vanilla-mocha and spicy oak aromas. Sourced from multiple Northern Sonoma vineyards, this Zin is full bodied from 15% alcohol and a touch of residual sugar, matching the intensity of the berry fruit flavours on offer. Wild berry acidity keeps the finish from feeling fat and layers of charred oak, vanilla, cranberry and pecan pie notes add depth and complexity.
Build on the charred oak flavours and pair with blackened, sweet'n'spicy BBQ meats. Drink now-2017.
