Rodney Strong Merlot, Sonoma County, 2016

Family owned. Sonoma grown. Established 1959 Sonoma County. At Rodney Strong Vineyards, we focus on modern artisan winemaking, exclusively from Sonoma County, California. We are committed to crafting quality wines in our sustainable winery in order to protect our resources for the future. Our Sonoma County Merlot hails from gravelly loam soils in the warmer growing regions of Sonoma County. This wine has black plum, berry and spice flavors. Aging in small oak barrels impairs a toasty vanilla character that lingers through the silky finish. - Tom Klein, Proprietor; Justin Seidenfeld, Winemaker. Alc. 14.5% by vol.
