Wow. This is a big boy from Rodney Strong. There is a caramel/coffee bean element to both the nose and the palette. Definitely the strongest Rodney offering. Wowzers. Pair this bad boy with short ribs or bolognese. Any dish that isn't rich, and this wine will make it its bitch. Good stuff.

Loads of dark fruit: plums and currants. Some anise. A touch heavy handed with the oak IMO but hopefully it will balance out with some time.

Nice Cab. Restrained but still fruity with good tannin and not overly oaky, which is a problem I sometimes have with RS wines

Dark fruit- plum and blackberries. Smooth tannins and long finish.

Deep vibrant ruby color. A tad smoky or gravel. Medium high tannins. Dry. Average acidity. Average alcohol. Medium full bodied. Great CA cab.
