Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sonoma County, California, United StatesFrom three vineyards across Sonoma County, and soil types including alluvial, volcanic, and shale, this cab sauv spent 16 months in 45% French and 55% American oak. The wood is up front and omnipresent, with a shellack of walnut, leather, dried cassis, bitter cherry and ample peppery spicing on the warm finish. Tannins are fuzzy, easily supporting the over-ripe (browning) fruit. Not an example of less is more, and if you're looking for more is good, here you go.Tasted: 07 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.49 BCLS AB 24.99 private wine shops ON 24.95 LCBO SK 25.00 YK 27.00 QC 23.90 SAQ US 20.00 srp Producer: Rodney Strong Estate VineyardsDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
