1996 Rodney Strong Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Alexander Valley

Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Full bodied and richly textured, this cabernet displays intense aromas and flavors of black currant, sandalwood, white pepper, and cocoa, with a smooth, lingering finish. If you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this Reserve down for up to a decade and patience will reward you.

Winemaker's Notes

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.
