Rodney Strong Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Sonoma County California 

My Rating 86 Points.   

Price $22.
Nice color of dark ruby with a brick /purple rim.

Inviting nose of blackberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, earth, dust, peppercorn, leather, smoke and bell pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, wood, vegetables, coffee, vanilla, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins.

A Nice Cabernet from Alexander Valley, California. Has some vegetable notes, but otherwise, balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food, like BBQ Meats.
Shows nice complexity now, with a nice mouthfeel.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
