Rodney Strong Symmetry Meritage Red Blend 2014
Celebrating the esteemed art of blending, the spirit of Symmetry is the true essence of Sonoma County winemaking. With nearly 40 years experience growing classic French grape varieties here, Rodney Strong selects their best cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and other traditional Bordeaux grapes from mountain and hillside vineyards in Alexander Valley, where well-drained rocky soils combine with warm sunny days and cool nights to provide ideal growing conditions.
Their story begins over 55 years ago, when a celebrated American dancer named Rod Strong settled in Sonoma County to pursue a second lifelong creative passion: winemaking. Rodney Strong Vineyards was the 13th winery bonded in the newly discovered Sonoma County wine industry. A trio of winemaking paths crossed when Rick Sayre joined the team as Winemaker in 1979, and again when the Klein Family, 4th generation California farmers, purchased the winery in 1989 and initiated a renewed commitment of modern artisan winemaking.
