Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2008
The Alexander Valley signature style is evident in this delicious cabernet: bold fruit aromas and flavors centered on red plum and boysenberry, and a rich and mouthfilling texture with soft tannins, all of which we've framed in the finest oak barrels for 18.5 months. Enjoy over the next 3 -6 years.
Quite leafy on the nose, yet also revealing some tart raspberry and smoky undertones. Not as deep and powerful as our other CA cab friends, but friendly on the tannins, making this approachable and straight forward.

I really enjoyed this wine. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. A great bargain for the price!
External Reviews for Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
An easy-drinking style that offers aromas of cedar, cigar box, herb and dried currant. Medium- to full-bodied, complex and balanced.
Brings a welcome restraint to Cabernet, offering a dry, somewhat tannic wine of great elegance. Easy to like for its balanced flavors of blackberries and black currants, with gentle influences of oak. Pretty good price for a wine of polish and sophistication.
Spicy and delicious. Shows lush flavors of blackberries, cherries, black currants and smoky oak, with a rich, creamy streak of chocolate. This softly dry Cab is ready to drink now.
Rodney Strong Vineyards have over 200 acres of Cabernet in the benchlands and hillsides of the Alexander Valley. That's how they can make a wine so good for such a great price. All estate fruit is sourced, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and the bold forward style of Alexander Valley is written all over it. Rich plum, blackberry, cherry and cocoa notes wrapped in a lush, mouthfilling, richly textured package. The wine is aged 18 months in French and American oak for an added dimension of toasty spice. A Gold Medal in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition just confirms what we already know. Don't miss it!
Aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and earth lead to a rich, layered mouthfeel, replete with black cherry, cedar and cassis, and structured with lush, mature tannins. Enjoy this seductive cabernet sauvignon now and over the next several years. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
A great Cabernet from a great producer. Initial hints of chocolate and black cherries punch through on the first sip, spiraling outward to envelope you with rich fruit and a finish of spicy oak. This Cabernet will grab your taste buds, inviting pairings such as steak or Angus burgers.
Rodney Strong has vineyards across the county, from cool to warm, and winemaker Rick Sayre is a master blender. This is a terrific wine at this price. Itrsquo;s rich and opulent in blackberry, cassis, cocoa and sweet oak, with ripe tannins and a beautiful balance. At this enormous production level mdash; nearly a quarter-million cases mdash; this is a tremendous effort.
