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
External Reviews for Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon 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.
The Alexander Valley signature style is evident, bold fruit aromas and flavors centered on red plum and boysenberry. Consistently a best seller, a great cabernet for every day. This gift basket also included accessories and food items.
A much darker more structured wine the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockaway is loaded with blackish/purple fruit smoke tobacco licorice cloves and grilled herbs. The 2010 impresses for its layered nuanced personality and overall sense of harmony. Stylistically the 2010 is quite somber and brooding but it is quite attractive. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
