Rodney Strong Vineyards: Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Rodney Strong Vineyards: Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

This Cabernet Sauvignon is developed in the well-drained alluvial, volcanic, and uplifted shale/sandstone soils on the benches and hillsides of the celebrated Alexander Valley.

The nose was a fine combination of cherry, eucalyptus and vanilla. On the palate, cherry, anise, raspberry-spice, vanilla and oak flow with fairly good structure. This is a "chewy" wine with strong tannins that create a nice layered feel with the various flavors. The finish was long with raspberry and oak. As the bottle opened, the nose revealed a great surprise of an oily olive scent to the other aromas. The palate moved to cherry, currant, anise, raspberry with vanilla and oak at the back. This is a treat of a wine not to be missed. Cheers!

How could you possibly go wrong with portobello mushrooms, pesto, and mozarella cheese?  Very rich and flavorful.

Filet mignon, great flavor and texture with little hoopla, just grill and enjoy. It's always the simple things that can make a difference, here the grill technique is everything.
