Rodney Strong Northern Sonoma Knotty Vines 2009 Zinfandel, $16.14-$21.99, 86 points, has a strawberry to ruby color which is quite clear throughout. The aroma is tart cherry pie and sweet spice. A medium body carries lots of juicy cherry and plum, but it is the fair finish of spice and a fair price that give this wine a buy signal from me. The 2009 Knotty Vines is a bit sweet, but does make your mouth water. This wine is a bit on the syrupy side and didn't pair very well with my T-bone steak, but was okay with a broccoli and turkey casserole. The next day this Zin paired fine with a Meatball sub and provolone.
