"A high octane style with oak and intense black fruit on the nose. Shiny, posh and plush palate, with well-integrated oak and sweet ripe tannins."
Wine Advocate 90
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and scented of crushed blackberries, wild blueberries and warm plums with touches of underbrush, bay leaves and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied with an approachable frame of fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, the palate reveals plenty of crunchy black fruits, finishing with great purity."
Wine Enthusiast 90
"Juicy black cherry and blueberry wrap around big, expansive tannins in this hearty red that is sourced from several of the producer's best sites. With a backbone of structure and oak, it's toasty in character yet robustly fruity."
" Rich, lush and structured, the 2014 vintage displays intense aromas flavors of blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis and crushed violet. This wine is velvety with a smooth, lingering finish of toasty baking spices, vanilla and cocoa.
Enjoy this wine now with blue cheese crostini, grilled vegetables, braised beef short ribs or cellar it for enjoyment in years to come.
Blend: 96 Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 Petit Verdot, 1 Malbec " ~ Winery notes

Through the years, Rodney Strong Vineyards has earned the reputation for critically acclaimed Single Vineyard and Reserve wines, stand out Estate releases and best-in-class Sonoma County varietal wines.
