Winemaker Notes

Adding Cabernet Franc to the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for the first time has contributed to the wines firmness. The wines aromatics and flavors are equally concentrated and mirror well the new blend. The nose is heady with wild blackberry, dark brown sugar a hint of chocolate-mint and roasting coffee with a note of spicy ribbon candy.

Richly textured and firm, the mouth is filled with flavors from start to finish of ripe black fruits enriched with moist loamy earth character. Excellently balanced.

Ill enjoy the newest Alexanders Crown with Beef Tenderloin or a Rib Roast with fresh Thyme. - Richard B. Sayre, Winemaker

Rodney Strong Vineyards Winery Video

Founded by wine industry pioneer, Rod Strong, in 1959, Rodney Strong Vineyards is now owned by the Kleins, a farming-based family that prides itself on land stewardship and a relentless push for superior wine quality from Sonoma County. After purchasing the company in 1989, Tom Klein began the endeavor that today brings together excellent vineyards, the industry's finest winemaking equipment, and exceptional talent. The winery farms and sources grapes from vineyards throughout Sonoma County, focusing on Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and Chalk Hill. Rodney Strong Vineyards is best known for its estate-bottled and vineyard-designated wines, and is also recognized for their sustainable and Fish Friendly Farming, dedication to solar energy production and becoming carbon neutral in 2009.

While Sonoma County is acclaimed—and rightfully so—for its Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Zinfandels, it also produces exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the region’s 18 American Viticultural Areas, only a handful produce top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon. These appellations include Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, Sonoma Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignons made in these appellations can offer a complex array of aromas and flavors. Fruit notes such as blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, black cherry and raspberry often are accompanied by hints of graphite, dusty earth, cigar box, toast and vanilla. The varietal has a rich history in Sonoma, and some of these Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet-based blends rival the best from Napa Valley.
