Rodney Strong 2009 Zinfandel Knotty Vines


This delicious Zinfandel, grown behind the winery along Sonoma County’s Westside Road, comes from knotty old grapevines planted in 1904. There’s not much of it so it’s blended with Zinfandels grown in Alexander Valley. I enjoyed its delicious flavors of wild blackberries, black cherries, and sweet spice with a hint of green peppers. It’s ripe and bold but not over the top. It’s a wine for quaffing on the patio and enjoying with barbecued ribs, steaks, or chicken with beans and coleslaw. Still available at BevMo! it’s just $19.99.
