Rodney Strong Alexander Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
|California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley
This powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillsides of Alexander Valley has aromas of lush, red plum and dark berries that dominate the glass, while hints of cassis and milk chocolate play in the background. The dried fig and chewy tannins give this wine a strong backbone, while the 24 months of barrel aging have softened this bold wine just enough to enjoy now with a cheese and charcuterie board, filet mignon with grilled vegetables or a dark chocolate mousse. Drink over the next 5 to 7 years.
A rich, creamy texture floats lush black fruits and intricate oak spices in this full-bodied, palate-saturating wine. Cooked blueberries, blackberry jam and espresso crema come to mind when sipping this elegant, velvety wine.
