The 2010 Rodney Strong Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from Alexander Valley in Sonoma County, has rich aromas of eucalyptus, wood, black currant, blackberry, black cherry and vanilla. It is a medium to full bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with crisp acidity, dusty tannins and a tongue coating, medium to long finish. This is a food friendly and sipping wine; drink now to 2020+. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted in Apr/14 at 'California Wine Fair' http://grapeselections.com/grapeselections/wine-reviews/.
