Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Sonoma County, California, United States2018 brings a new look to this well-established label, which we've been reviewing since 1997. Rodney Strong planted his first cabernet vineyard in 1971 in Sonoma's Alexander Valley, and today this wine comes from three vineyards across the County. This shows ripe, plummy fruit with graphite and a moderate dusting of oak spices. It's direct and accessible, with soft tannins that make this ready to drink now. It's not a shy wine at 14.5%, but it's still fresh and balanced.Tasted: 11 April 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 26.99 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
