Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Sonoma County, California, United StatesMany believe 2002 is a better vintage than 2001 in California; the '01 Rodney Strong cab bears out such thinking. The nose is an enticing mix of black fruits and coffee with a strong cherry/vanilla aftertaste. The textures are rich and soft with plenty of ripe cassis and vanilla in the finish. You can drink it now or hold it through 2010 and that is a very good sign. Well done.Tasted: 26 May 2005Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 28.99 Specialty AB 21.99 Fine Wine Boutiques ON 25.05 Producer: Rodney Strong Estate VineyardsDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
