2012 Rodney Strong Estate Vineyards Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
Tom Klein Proprietor of Rodney Strong says it best, "Place is not everything. But place is the most important thing." What you find in every bottle is a passion for producing world class wines and the dedication to Sonoma County.
Tonight's wine comes from the hillsides of Alexander Valley where the soil is perfect for growing Cabernet grapes. Aged in french oak for 17 months, the wine is big in the beginning and soft on the finish.
Ripe dark fruit notes of plum and blackberry surrounded by dried herbal notes and cocoa. The mouth showcases the exceptional juicy dark fruit with a kiss of spice, cocoa powder and oak. Priced at $28 a very good value for this quality wine. One of my friends shared with me that RS Vineyards is their go to wine!
Looking for that perfect cruise which pairs great scenery, wine and food then look no further and sign up for the Pearls of the Mediterranean Wine Cruise scheduled for June 16 through the 23rd. Italy, Spain, France and Monaco plus food and wine.......a trip of a lifetime. If your unable to make the trip and in wine country stop by the tasting room Healdsburg for a sip and a bottle or 2.
