Origin California, Sonoma County
Brand Rodney Strong
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
Our 2022 Sonoma County Merlot is velvety soft with notes of sweet black cherry, boysenberry compote and cassis. Medium bodied with lush tannins, this wine boasts toasty oak and spice on the mid-palate punctuated by a full and lively finish. These luscious dark fruit and toasty flavors are enhanced by aging in French oak barrels. Enjoy this soft and elegant Merlot with grilled pork chops and cherry reduction, lavender crusted lamb shanks or creamy polenta with a short rib ragu.

Drenched in black fruits and dark spices, this velvety, mouthfilling wine wows the palate with rich blackberries, black currants and cedar notes, wrapped in noticeable, shaping tannins. One of the more structured Merlots, it will pair with food by Cabernet standards. Best from 2025.
