Rodney Strong Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, California 

My Rating 86 Points.   

Price $18.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Nice fruity nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather and smoke.

Medium plus in finish with firm tannins and black pepper.

A nice Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County. Drinking nicely now. Balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Enjoyable by itself or with food.
