This is my second recommendation of a Rodney Strong wine. So far they are two for two. This wine has a nice fruit front, and is well balanced with nice acidity and a long smooth finish. This medium bodied wine was aged for 13 months in small French oak barrels, which adds the vanilla and spice components that I really like.
