Brand Rodney Strong
Alcohol/vol 14.2%
Full bodied and richly textured, this cabernet displays intense aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, earth, and black olive, with a smooth, lingering finish. Structured to be age-worthy, it is layered with the addition of merlot, which not only adds complexity, it also serves to round out the mid-palate and soften the abundant ripe tannins just enough to make this a big wine that you can enjoy now. However, if you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this Reserve down for up to ten years, and patience will reward you as well!

The winery's reserve Cab has been variable over the years, but this '02 is really a very good wine that will reward cellaring. It's luscious now, but such are the tannins, the dry balance, and the freshness of the blackberry flavors, that time in the bottle is bound to reward. Should open by the end of 2007, and drink well for the next five years.
