Rodney Strong Wine Estates Knotty Vines Estate Zinfandel 2008
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: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7.
Terrific cherry-berry aromas burst from the glass! Love the energy and pleasure here. Round, smooth and full-bodied. Slippery-great. Top me up!

the best that zinfandel can offer in one wine. Aging for 17 months in French and American oak enhances the zinfandel’s inherent spicy qualities, while retaining the ebullient fruit of this medium
