Rodney Strong Symmetry Red Meritage 2008 750ml

Rodney Strong Symmetry Red Meritage

94 Points Wine Enthusiast: A great Bordeaux-style wine that can stand proudly next to Napa bottling that cost far more. It’s mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with the other four permitted Meritage varieties, and there seems to be lots of new, sweetly toasted oak. The blackberry, cherry, red currant, mocha and bacon flavors are delicious, but even better is the tannic structure. It’s soft and alluring enough to drink now.

Celebrating the esteemed art of blending, Symmetry captures the essence of the Alexander valley. With 40 years experience growing classic French grape varieties here, we select our best cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and other traditional Bordeaux grapes from the hills that overlook the valley, where well-drained rocky soils combine with warm, sunny days and cool nights to provide ideal growing conditions. 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 are considered for Symmetry. 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, depending on the vintage, before bottling.
