Rodney Strong Estate Vineyards – Zinfandel 2012 – Knotty Vines – Northern Sonoma – Sonoma County

The nose reveals notes of plum, cassis and slight notes of fig associated with slight notes of mentholed liquorice. The palate is fruity, mineral and offers a certain density and a certain creaminess. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of plum, blackberry and chocolate combined with touches of licorice as well as a few slight notes of cherry in the background. Tannins are fine and slightly dry. Good length.
