Winemaker Notes

Rodney Strong's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from hillside vineyards in the northern reaches of Sonoma County. Targeted blocks are hand harvested and aged in the winery's finest French oak barrels. Rich and vibrant, this wine leads with layers of dark plum, blackberries and cassis -- and is balanced by natural acidity and oak on the long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

D 97
Decanter
Wonderfully refined, sumptuous and complex. Notes of dense ripe red fruits, generous blackcurrants and warm spice with cedar wood, tobacco, dark plum and chocolate. Powerful and rich yet with real elegance and finesse.

COMMENTARY: After I tasted the 2014 Rodney Strong Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, I thought that the apex had been reached, but the 2015 vintage is an even better wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine surpasses many Cabernets in the $75+ range. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, complimentary oak are beautiful, powerful and refined. Pair it with a black pepper-crusted T-Bone steak. (Tasted: November 14, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast

Smoky oak and firm, grippy tannins rise to the front of the palate in this reserve-tier wine. It is 100% varietal and sourced from multiple vineyards. Thick black fruit is complemented by cedar and dried herb atop a velvety smooth texture.

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.
