Wine Description

The 2007 Symmetry greets you with a generous bouquet of blackberries, ripe dark plums, sweet spices, and pie crust.

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!

  • Decanter Magazine
    Rich, toasty, black cherry, blackcurrant, coffee and chocolate nose. Classy and elegant palate with sweet, grippy tannins, lithe acidity, a soft texture and sensuous in style
  • Wine Enthusiast
    A great Bordeaux-style wine that can stand proudly next to Napa bottlings that cost far more. It’s mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with the other four permitted Meritage varieties, and there seems to be lots of new, sweetly toasted oak. The blackberry, cherry, red currant, mocha and bacon flavors are delicious, but even better is the tannic structure. It’s soft and alluring enough to drink now.
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to CA Wine
    Rodney Strong again gets admirable marks for this plump, well-polished effort that continues its recent string of red-wine successes. Fairly complex with a sense of layering to its ripe, carefully oaked, mildly herbal aromas and flavors, it is weighty in feel with measured tannins that add grip but avoid becoming overly tough. It is nontheless a wine that wants for mid-term aging, and it will start to open up nicely in four or five years of quiet cellaring.
