Natalie's Score: 91/100

There's terrific balance, structure, supple texture and length on the finish of this wine. Alluring aromas of mocha-coffee on the nose along with rich black fruit. Pleasantly surprising vibrant acidity for food. Plush black plums and coffee on the finish. Try is with braised beef. This warm-climate Merlot finishes with vanilla spice, dark berry and fig.

Merlot food pairings: beef, cheese, poultry, borsch (beet soup), quesadillas.

Reviews and Ratings

Rodney Strong was Sonoma’s 13th bonded winery back in 1959, and the Klein family has owned it ever since 1989. They strive for sustainable agriculture and thus became Sonoma County’s first carbon-neutral winery. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
