Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
This 2013 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is rich with dark cherry, plum and baking spices. The delicious fruit is accompanied by crushed violet and black pepper notes. The palate has medium tannins, lingering spicy oak fl avors and a lush finish. Enjoy this Cabernet now with grilled steak, pot roast, pork shoulder or pasta with a tomato sauce.
2013 was the kind of growing season that most would wish we could have every year: a dry, frost-free spring, a warm summer without heat spikes, and a warm rain free autumn that allowed for picking the grapes perfectly mature. Warm days with cool evenings prevailed in September which kept sugar accumulation at an even pace and allowed acidity to remain in the fruit. We harvested the Cabernet Sauvignon to make this wine in September and October under ideal conditions.
