Rodney Strong 2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
Top 100 Wines of 2019

2015 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

“There’s a lot of wine here for the price, and it’s arguably the winery’s finest Reserve Cabernet ever. A relatively new addition to the blend is fruit from the mountainous Cooley Ranch north of Alexander Valley; astute matching of oak barrels to those intense grapes works beautifully. The wine is polished and structured, with succulent dark fruit and hints of fresh herbs and cocoa.”

2017 Sonoma County Chardonnay

"Brimming in aromas of peach and vanilla, this wine is complex and layered. Bright acidity boosts the rich elements of fruit and oak on the palate." - V. B.

2016 Estate Russian River Pinot Noir

"Bright in acidity and cradled moderate oak, this wine shows a crunchiness to the tannins and bright bursts of cranberry, pomegranate and orange peel flavors. Elements of baking spice dot the finish, contrasting well against the rich fruit." -V.B.

2018 Charlotte's Home Sauvignon Blanc

“This crisp white is steely and bright in acidity. A core of pear, fig and mint shows a creaminess on the midpalate that remains balanced and fruit forward through the finish.” - V.B.

2015 Alexanders Crown Cabernet Sauvignon
94 points

2015 Alexander's Crown Cabernet Sauvignon

“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander's Crown is a very pretty, nuanced wine. In this vintage, it is much more refined than it has been in the past, which is great to see. Bright floral notes, sweet red-toned fruit and silky tannins give the 2015 an air of classiness that is impossible to miss. If this is the direction these wines are headed in, the future at Rodney Strong is very bright.” - A.G.

2015 Rowen Red Wine
92 points

2015 Rowen Red Wine Blend

"The 2015 Red Wine is an intriguing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah and Viognier. Bold and punchy, it offers plenty of immediacy. A rush of super-ripe red cherry, plum, rose petal, spice, white chocolate, hard candy and mint builds in the glass. Plush and enveloping, with soft curves, the 2015 is sure to be a crowd-pleaser."
