Knotty Vines is an unabashed price range model from Rodney Strong, standing because the third (or perhaps fourth) label in its arsenal. We not too long ago tasted a group of 4 wines from the model, the complete lineup of its choices.

2019 Knotty Vines Chardonnay California – Right here’s an actual shock to kick issues off: This chardonnay has had a really mild hand of oak utilized, letting the pure notes of apple and citrus shine by means of with stunning readability. Tropical and citrusy with a gentle-handed sweetness, the wine slowly develops vanilla notes that give the end a slight contact of creaminess alongside a somewhat tart, semi-sweet punch. I might by no means have pegged this as a California chardonnay tasting it blind, but it surely’s actually gratifying by itself deserves. Nice worth. A-

2019 Knotty Vines Pinot Noir California – Completely approachable however largely undistinguished, that is pinot noir at its most elementary, a flippantly candy, berry-scented expertise that finds a generalized beefiness paired with vague floral components, ample maraschino cherry, and only a contact of orange peel. The end feels gritty and a bit tough, although as a “by the glass” choice it seems like an reasonably priced, if wholly fundamental, choice. C+

2019 Knotty Vines Crimson Mix California – A mix of Merlot, Malbec, Zinfandel, and Petit Verdot, this wine is once more approachable however simple, with brilliant pink berry notes, a contact of milk chocolate, and lightweight caramel word lingering on the end. I get a touch of bay leaf on the again finish however not a lot; the wine is vague and a bit gummy, with solely essentially the most cursory of tertiary components. C+

2019 Knotty Vines Cabernet Sauvignon California – I had low expectations for this wine however was happy to search out it an approachable, lush bottling filled with pink fruit and milk chocolate notes. Mild vanilla provides the raspberry core a slight twist on the core fruit bomb recipe, and whereas the wine may desperately use some tannins to prop issues up, it presents itself amiably as is — contemplating the worth, anyway.
