Smooth, rich, sweet baking notes. Paired perfect with Bittersweet chocolate.

Upon opening, the first thought that came to mind was "chocolate". What a wonderful aroma. Full bodied, yet smooth.

Big fruity bouquet on the nose. Awesome structure and you can really feel the time in oak. 21 months did well for this beauty

Not bad for Rodney Strong!!!! 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.5%. Be careful with this one. Its easy to drink and quick to make you very relaxed an inhibition free. Big bold dark fruit on the beginning lots of spice and oak in the middle with a long dry tart finish. Yummy. It almost crunches in your mouth. This is the definition of a big chewy wine.

I was surprised to find this 2012 on a menu by the glass for $13. It’s earthy, with just enough tannins. Big berries on the front, with currants and cassis.
