Deep and richly fruited this is dripping with plum jam, cassis, bramble, jalepeno jelly and sweet baking spice tones. The herbal and oak tones gain the upper hand here with some pine and green tomato tones but this remains attractive on the nose. Apon opening this is lovely in the mouth with tons of ripe fruit tannins, fine acidity and good density that is just a touch chewy. Perhaps a touch monolithic today and while the acidity begins to be more apparent this retains good harmony in the mouth. It’s pure cassis, olive and bitter spice notes on the backend and the finish as classic Cabernet. Elegant yet intense. 90pts

My Rating 88: This wine is extremely dry with not much body behind it. The overwhelming feature is a strong oak component that shines through in taste and nose. I personally think the wine maker went overboard with the oak chips he put into the barrels. With out the oak the wine would rate somewhat lower

Casis and smoke. We have a case of this laying around and last night I decided to take one out. Great nose, smokey taste and a long finish.

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.

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.

The core flavors of this Cabernet are blackberry, red currant and fresh earth, with accented scents of mint and herbs. Due to ageing in French oak, this Bordeaux style Cabernet has a subtle toasty spice component, and is a very round, soft and elegant wine.

Deep, dark ruby color, with vibrant red currant, fresh herb, cr?me de cassis, and cedar aromas, this elegant and full bodied wine coata the palate with supple textures, anchored by soft tannins and balanced acidity, with cedar and rich red fruit flavors e

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.

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."
