Rodney Strong A True Gentleman's Port, Sonoma County 2004
Region: Sonoma Valley
Winery: Rodney Strong
A True Gentleman's Port is named in honor of our friend, advisor, and much loved family member, Dick Klein. He loved life, his friends, his family and the camaraderie of all occasions.
In the Ports of Portugal, there is a legally defined set of allowable grape varieties that reflects the long tradition of the region. Here in Sonoma County we believe that the best grapes for making Port wine are those that have great fruit flavor, a fine depth of character, and excellent color. For this release we have chosen Zinfandel, Syrah, and Petite Sirah. The combination of these three varietals, from five of our best vineyards, results in a wine with balanced sweetness, powerful flavors, and an unctuous texture that glides on the palate, and lingers. Because of its sweet and special nature, Port is generally considered a dessert wine. It can easily be enjoyed by itself, or with a selection of cheeses, nuts, or even dark chocolate.
This selection is only available for purchase online or at our tasting room.
