Rodney Strong Sonoma County Alexander Valley 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $22.09-$29.99, 91 points, may just be the best of the Rodney Strong wines I've tasted, but because this Cabernet maybe more like a Zinfandel than their Knotty Pines Zinfandel, my disclaimer is: if you're looking for a full bodied ultra rich 91 point Cabernet this isn't it, but it is a delicious medium bodied wine that carries a mouth watering acidity and smooth tannin with flavors of light blueberry, licorice, and plum. The Rodney Strong Cabernet finishes long and strong on spice that more than competes with their Zin.
The color is Burgundy throughout with a large (Expected) transparent rim, and the aroma is a minty cedar with sweet cooking spice.
