Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
from Sonoma County, California
For the second year in a row, the 2008 vintage started off with a very dry
spring, which typically produces smaller clusters, smaller berries, and less
canopy overall. Frost visited many vineyards over several nights in April,
further reducing potential yield. Then a hot spell engulfed the region in the
middle of May, while grape clusters were flowering, again
threatening to lower yields. The main
growing season, however, was
without incident, with warm to hot
days and cool nights the rule,
and all of this cabernet was
harvested between September 11th
and October 27th.
Aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and
currant lead to a rich, layered
mouthfeel, replete with black cherry,
cedar, and cassis, and structured with
lush, mature tannins. Enjoy this
seductive cabernet sauvignon
now and over the next several years.
