2005 Rodney Strong Symmetry Meritage

Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) The 2007 Symmetry greets you with a generous bouquet of blackberries, ripe dark plums, sweet spices, and pie crust. It opens boldly on the palate with layers of blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate and brown spice. This mouth-filling wine is rich, silky in texture, expansive, and quite long on the finish, and manages to be at once harmonious, powerful, and elegant. Intended to be enjoyable on release, Symmetry is destined for years of further evolution in the bottle. Savor it!

Winemaker's Notes

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.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    73% 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.
