1997 Rodney Strong Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
|Vineyard:||Rodney Strong Vineyards|
The smaller yield proved to be of good fortune as red wines are richly concentrated including our 1996 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. A brilliant and deep violet hew makes way for an abundance of blueberry and dried-cherry fruit in the nose with a wisp of gardenia, candied citrus peel and star anise. Firm bodied with moderate tannins enveloping layers of flavors that are fruitful like blueberry and currant yet complimented with a touch of chocolate-caramel and a slight note of roasted nuts.
