Rodney Strong Alexander Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
“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."
