Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2015

Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, United StatesThis is an archetypical New World cabernet, combining confected, jammy black fruits with prominent sweet baking spices from aging in 50% new oak for 18 months. There's a sweetness to the attack given the ripeness level of the fruit, which has removed any herbal character, but it's still medium-bodied with some degree of freshness. The tannins are a touch astringent right now, so get the grill out if you open this over the next 1-2 years.Tasted: 24 September 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.00 private wine shops AB 28.00 private wine shops ON 28.00 Producer: Rodney Strong Estate VineyardsDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
