Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon based wine from Rodney Strong is very impressive. It opens with a pleasant mild boysenberry and faint leather bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well-balanced and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black currant with notes of fine-grained minerality. I also detected hints of black tea, black cherry and some oak. The finish displays rather sticky dusty tannins that linger for a very long time. The elegance of the 2014 vintage is definitely present in this wine. However, its finish makes it stand above most. I would decant this wine and then serve it with a New York strip steak in the near term. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Symmetry is a luxurious bouquet of black cherry, plum, black fi g and rose petals which unfold on the palate with silky layers of black fruits, minerality and baking spices. This wine is harmonious and elegant with a vibrant mouthfeel. Enjoy this wine now with roasted vegetables, grilled pork tenderloin, braised lamb shanks, or cellar for enjoyment for years to come.
