Rodney Strong recognized in the late 1960s that Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley was an exceptional area for heat loving Cabernet Sauvignon. He planted their first Cabernet vineyard in 1971, Alexander’s Crown, on a small hill in Jimtown, and the reputation for fine Sonoma County Cabernet has never looked back. Today they farm four exceptional Cabernet vineyards, from Jimtown all the way north to Cloverdale, planted in the well-drained alluvial, volcanic, and uplifted shale/sandstone soils that make Sonoma County an ideal place for this noble grape.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A deep, saturated color leads to lifted aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and herby black-currant, followed by a rich, layered mouthfeel, loaded with juicy black cherry, cedar, and crème de cassis, and structured with ripe, mature tannins.
Vineyard Notes
The 2010 vintage started with a cool and fairly wet spring that remained mostly frost free. Late rains generated a healthy canopy, but one that required careful management to avoid green flavors. The cool spring evolved into an exceptionally cool summer, punctuated by a three day heat spike in August which reduced yields in many varieties, but generally spared Cabernet Sauvignon. September started out warm and continued into October, giving us the ripeness we were waiting for. We harvested the last of our Cabernet on October 28th under ideal conditions.
Food Pairing Notes
Italian sausages or pasta with a tomato sauce.
