Rodney Strong Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Blueberries, cherries, and vanilla waft up from the glass. Tart cherries and sweet blueberries, with blackberry and oak in the background, make up the palate. A touch of raspberry adds a little zing to the finish. Muscular tannins and a meaty body make a vigorous mouthful, that would pair well with lamb chops. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH

Rodney Strong Symmetry

Huge, ripe black fruits lead on the palate, black currant, plums, and elderberry, with milk chocolate and espresso adding depth on the mid-palate. This requires red meat and fat - try it with lamb chops with béarnaise butter. Highly Recommended. 93 points.
