Deep ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose.

Positives: This easy drinking Cab features cinnamon & clove on the nose mingling onto the palate with cedar, blackberry, cassis, turmeric, blueberry, plum, dark chocolate, vanilla bean, cigar box and leather. Medium+ body with medium to medium+ tannins, good acidity a long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Notes: Rodney Strong wines are consistently good.

Drink now on its own or cellar it for another 5 years. Pair it with T-Bone steak.

Tasted: 6 July 2013
