Rodney Strong – Merlot 2012 – Sonoma County

The nose is quite powerful. It reveals notes of blackberry, plum and violet. The palate is balanced, round, mineral and offers a slight creaminess. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry and notes of cassis associated with a few slight notes of strawberry (in the background) as well as discreet spicy notes in the background. Tannins are fine. Good length.
