Alcohol/vol 14.5%
A powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillsides of Alexander Valley has aromas of lush, red plum and dark berries that dominate the glass, while hints of cassis and milk chocolate play in the background. The dried fig and chewy tannins give this wine a strong backbone, while the 18 months of barrel aging have softened this bold wine just enough to enjoy now or with a cheese and charcuterie board, filet mignon with grilled vegetables or a dark chocolate mousse. Drink over the next five to seven years. Pair this wine with herb crusted pork loin, grilled vegetables, a Gruyère cheese and mushroom topped burger, or cellar for enjoyment over the next three to five years.

“What a wonderful expression of Cabernet! Deep ruby in color, this gorgeous & powerful 2016 Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon from the magical hillsides of Alexander Valley showcases intense fragrances of black currants, ripe black cherries and blackberries with subtle notes of violets, mocha and dried spices. Full bodied, rich complex, layered fruit and balanced by fresh acidity with a firm, polished tannin structure. Big, powerful, modern-styled Cabernet Sauvignon with seductive texture, velvety tannins & a lovely sense of place. Juicy dark, ripe berry fruit, while nuances of cedar, clove and vanilla bean which round out the long, smooth & harmoniously expressive finish. You don’t want to miss this extraordinary red wine! Drinking beautifully now through 2030.”

"Outstanding! Sweet, generous, exuberant nose, black olives and dark chocolate as well as blackcurrant. Rich and succulent, full-bodied, chocolatey, lavish fruit that’s very concentrated. Tannins are nicely integrated and overall, this shows elegance, ripeness and weight. Very long finish. A superb Cabernet! Enjoy from 2020-2030."
