Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Alexandera Valley 2012 750ml

Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Alexandera Valley

91 Point Wine Enthusiast :Full bodied and richly textured, this cabernet displays intense aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, earth, and black olive, with a smooth, lingering finish. Structured to be age-worthy, it is layered with the addition of merlot, which not only adds complexity, it also serves to round out the mid-palate and soften the abundant ripe tannins just enough to make this a big wine that you can enjoy now. However, if you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this Reserve down for up to ten years, and patience will reward you as well!

Visitors to the winery often ask what “Reserve” Cabernet means to us. It’s simple. Reserve means the winemaker’s careful blend of individual Cabernet Sauvignon lots 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 Cabernets that display depth, richness, intensity, and age worthiness are considered for Reserve Cabernet. The 100% Cabernet 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.

Can't find a better Cab at this price. Full bodied and very smooth. This is as good or better than bottles in the $60-$80 range.
