2019 Ultimate Wine Challenge

Rodney Strong Vineyards Merlot 2015 Sonoma County (United States), 14.5% abv, $20.00

95
Extraordinary,
Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Note:

This is a great example of this noble grape’s potential. Abundant aromas of blackberry, plum, and roasted cherries are intertwined with licorice, cloves, and black pepper. The velvety mouthfeel is pleasant and seems to amplify the flavors that last forever on the tongue.
