This is a well balanced, full bodied wine. Heavy hitting at 14.9% abv, the nose is intense with hints of black fruit and mocha. Pleasant and persistent finish. I would highly recommend this wine for consumption now, or for a few years down the road.

Rodney Strong Cab Reserve is the winemaker’s careful blend of individual wines made from time tested, meticulously farmed sections of some of the very best vineyards in Alexander Valley. Select areas within each vineyard are hand harvested individually, fermented separately, and aged in the finest French oak barrels. After about six months, each lot is tasted and graded, and only the highest graded wines that display depth, concentration, and age worthiness are considered for Reserve Cabernet. The blend is then assembled, and the wine is returned to barrels to facilitate flavor integration. The wine is aged an additional 12 to 18 months. The Wine Spectator scored this 2007 90 points saying "Dense, chewy and full-bodied, offering rich, dark berry fruit that's deep and concentrated, with layers of dried currant, graphite, black licorice, mineral, cedar and nutmeg. Ends with mouthcoating tannins. Best from 2011 through 2020."

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Reserve cabernet was created in our small lot winemaking facility, the “Winery Within the Winery.” Under the direction of consulting winemaker David Ramey, we employ cutting edge techniques such as cluster pre-sorting, berry sorting, and extended maceration. With small tanks and equipment sized for the most discriminating vineyard selection process, our new facility is truly state of the art, and represents the klein family commitment towards producing the finest wines possible.

Tasting Notes:

Full bodied and richly textured, this cabernet displays intense aromas and flavors of black currant, sandalwood, white pepper, and cocoa, with a smooth, lingering finish. If you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this Reserve down for up to a decade and patience will reward you.
