Rodney Strong

2014 Rodney Strong, Chardonnay, Chalk Hill AVA, Sonoma County
92 Points, Ultimate Wine Challenge
This luxurious cuvee shows dense flavors of lemon skin, butter cookie, green apple, and baked vanilla. There is a full mouthfeel that coats the palate before a charming streak of citrus zest introduces the dry finish.

2017 Rodney Strong, Sauvignon Blanc, Charlotte's Home Vineyard, Sonoma County
Distinctive, opening with a smoky, toasty note that melts into marmalade, yuzu and pomelo flavors, with vibrant acidity, spice accents and a terrific sense of harmony on the finish. Drink now.

2015 Rodney Strong, Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, AVA, Sonoma County
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast
From cool, coastal sites, this wine impresses in full-bodied layers of lavender, smoke and forest floor, the fruit distinctly plum. Generous tannic structure gives it strength and power that’s countered by bright, integrated acidity

2014 Rodney Strong, Meritage, "Symmetry", Alexander Valley
91 points Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Proprietary Red Symmetry has pretty red and black currants notes with touches of dried herbs, tilled soil and tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives up vibrant black fruits with a refreshing line and nice, chewy tannins, finishing on a mineral note.

2015 Rodney Strong, Cabernet Sauvignon, Knights Valley AVA, Sonoma County
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley is deep garnet-purple in color and reveals a nose of cassis, wild blueberries and black cherries with touches of bay leaves and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives a good core of lively black and blue fruits with a chewy frame and herbal lift on the finish. 10,500 cases produced.

2015 Rodney Strong, Cabernet Sauvignon, "Reserve", Alexander Valley
Not Yet Rated, 2014: 91 points Robert Parker
Rich, lush and structured, the 2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays intense aromas of black currant, cassis and crushed violet. This wine is velvety with a smooth, lingering finish of herbal notes, vanilla and cocoa. Enjoy this wine now with a grilled porterhouse, rack of lamb and roasted vegetables, or lay a few bottles down in your cellar to enjoy in 4 to 6 years.

2015 Rodney Strong, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander's Crown Vineyard, Alexander Valley
Not Yet Rated, 2014: 92 points Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander's Crown Vineyard Estate opens with notions of freshly crushed red and black currants with touches of black cherries and mulberries plus a waft of fallen leaves. Medium to full-bodied, it has a good firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of juicy black fruits, finishing long and refreshing.
