Rodney Strong Symmetry 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
The 2013 Symmetry is a luxurious bouquet of blackberries, black cherry, plum and crushed lavender which unfold on the palate with silky layers of black fruits, dark chocolate covered espresso beans and baking spices. This wine is rich, harmonious and elegant with a long, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine now with a Beef Bourguignon, a lamb roast or a roasted vegetable tart or cellar for enjoyment for years to come.
This combines all five Bordeaux red varieties into a likable, integrated and smoothened experience on the palate that lingers in bold, concentrated flavors of blackberry and cocoa. A juicy core on the midpalate slides effortlessly into a spicy finish of clove.
Shades toward the tart side of Cabernet, with currant, blackberry and wild berry flavors and dusty oak and loamy earth notes, all supported by lively acidity and firm tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Drink now through 2027. 7,837 cases made.
