Rodney Strong Red Bordeaux Blend Alexander Valley Symmetry 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Symmetry greets you with an opulent bouquet of blackberries, currants, sweet spices, and a hint of violet blossom, and unfolds on the palate with layers of black fruits, dark chocolate and spice. This mouth-filling wine is rich and silky in texture, with the backbone for years in the cellar. It manages to be at once harmonious, concentrated, and elegant, with a long and powerful finish. Intended to be enjoyable on release, the 2010 Symmetry is destined for evolution in the bottle. Savor it! 79% cabernet sauvignon, 14% malbec, 6% merlot, 1% cabernet franc

Rodney Strong Vineyards:
  Founded in 1959 by Rodney Strong, Rodney Strong Vineyards has one of the richest histories in Sonoma County. It was the first vineyard to plant Chardonnay in Chalk Hill (1965), and the first to release it (1977). It was also the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley (1968) and the first to make a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon in Sonoma County (released in 1974). ... Read more
  Founded in 1959 by Rodney Strong, Rodney Strong Vineyards has one of the richest histories in Sonoma County. It was the first vineyard to plant Chardonnay in Chalk Hill (1965), and the first to release it (1977). It was also the first to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley (1968) and the first to make a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon in Sonoma County (released in 1974). Success didn’t come overnight: hard work and perseverance, coupled with a strong business sense and tender loving care, allowed the vineyard to prosper. When Tom Klein purchased the vineyard in 1989, a major overhaul was planned, and in a short 10 years, sales grew over 600% to 500,000 cases. Today, Rick Sayre, David Ramey, Greg Morthole, and Justin Seidenfeld, winemakers at Rodney Strong Vineyards, source grapes from over 1,000 acres of vines throughout Sonoma County, across 14 estate vineyards from Alexander Valley, the Russian River Valley, Chalk Hill, and Sonoma Coast. All of these high-quality grapes have allowed the winery to become the success that it is today. Read less

Dense and chewy, showing dark and red berry fruit, with notes of red and black licorice and a firm wall of ripe, chewy tannins. The fruit pushes through. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2014 through 2024. 3,936 cases made. -JL A lush, complex wine, based on Cabernet Sauvignon and including all of the classic Bordeaux varieties. It's softly tannic and slightly herbal in the Alexander Valley way, with savory black cherry, cherry liqueur, cocoa and oak flavors. The 2010 Symmetry greets you with an opulent bouquet of blackberries, cassis and sweet spices which unfold on the palate with layers of black fruits, dark chocolate and spice. This mouth-filling wine is rich and silky in texture, with the structure for several years in the cellar. It manages to be at once harmonious, concentrated and elegant, with a lingering finish. Intended to be enjoyable on release, the 2010 Symmetry is destined for evolution in the bottle. Sav...
