Wine is part of the meal and taste is very much an individual related variable. However, I think that a good wine will be recognized by everybody regardless of their experience with wine. Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those very great wine, something that is not happening every year and everybody will recognize and love it. Full bodied with ambrosia like texture, this cabernet has very intense, complex aromas. It is so deep and complex that I cannot imagine something better. It is one of a life time experience to drink it now. However I will save most of the bottles I bought for 2015.
