2005 Rodney Strong Symmetry Red Meritage Alexander Valley
|Vineyard:||Rodney Strong Vineyards|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec|
Beginning in 2005, our Symmetry meritage is created in our new small lot winemaking facility, a “winery within the winery.” Under the direction of consulting winemaker David Ramey, we employ cutting edge techniques such as cluster pre-sorting, berry sorting, and extended maceration. With small tanks and equipment sized for the most discriminating vineyard selection process, our new facility is truly state-of-the-art, and represents the Klein family commitment towards producing the finest wines possible.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines73% Cabernet Sauvignon; 15% Merlot; 5% Cabernet Franc; 4% Petit Verdot; 3% Malbec. Intriguing in its aromatic blending of currants, cherries, cocoa, dried flowers and hints of berries, this far-ranging wine lets down only the slightest in its compact and nominally tannin-bound flavors. Yet, its minor hesitation as it ends costs it a point or two.
