With the continued escalation of Cabernet prices, at least one wine in the marketplace stays value-oriented. The excellent 2015 Rodney Strong Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon gets high marks for over-delivering. This wine is stylish and well-balanced. Its aromas and flavors of red fruit, black fruit, and oak are in beautiful proportions. Pair it with a lightly-seasoned seared flank steak. (Tasted: February 16, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
Lush with blackberries, dark plum, and chocolate. Balanced by barrel aging, the soft, supple, and mature tannins give this wine an elegant backbone.
