Rodney Strong Wine Estates Zinfandel 2006
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Rodney Strong Wine Estates Zinfandel 2006 Wine Review
Zinfandel vines have been thriving in Sonoma County for the last three centuries. When Rod Strong first acquired benchland acreage on the west side of Russian River, they chose to leave untouched the 15 acres of old, gnarled zinfandel vines that had been growing there since 1904. Today they still harvest zinfandel from those same old vines, along with a handful of vineyards to the north in Alexander Valley. A rich, warm Zinfandel with excellent balance. Smooth and full-bodied with notes of dark plums and berries. 4.5/5 Zinfandel food pairings: hamburgers. steak, stew, boar.
