Editorial Reviews for Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
This offers up a lovely blend of black fruit, dried herb and fairly assertive smoky oak on the nose, with the herbal note remaining quite dominant. Smooth, polished and easy drinking, the oak is quite well integrates on the plummy, black currant driven palate that shows excellent clarity of flavor, though it does come off as a touch candied in the mouth before yielding to well structured though fairly dry, long finish. 87pts

Savings by the Case! Rodney Strong recognized in the late 1960s that Sonoma County s Alexander Valley was an exceptional area for heat loving Cabernet Sauvignon. With 500 acres, Rodney Strong Vineyards is making a strong showing of wines, well rated, located in Sonoma County.
A deep, saturated color leads to lifted aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and herby black-currant, followed by a rich, layered mouthfeel, loaded with juicy black cherry, cedar, and crème de cassis, and structured with ripe, mature tannins. Enjoy this seductive Cabernet Sauvignon now and over the next several years. - Winery

Aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and currant 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.
A little less outgoing than either of its two mates and a wine that is ripe and a bit narrow at one and the same time Strong
