For the red wine lover in your life. This set offers three medium to full bodied wines. Enjoy all three in a side-by-side comparison or one at a time as you indulge in the flavors of a true Rodney Strong red wine. Comes in a black, branded gift box filled with recycled material.

2018 Old Vines Zinfandel

Fresh, bright berry fruit form our heritage Russian River vineyard, combined with the ripe, peppery jam from our Alexander Valley and Dry Creek vineyards, make for a wonderful diversity of flavor, showcasing the best that Zinfandel can offer. This wine boasts notes of blackberry, plum and boysenberry with a touch of red fruit jam and creamy vanilla. Enjoy this Zinfandel now with spiced short ribs, pulled pork sandwiches or a barbeque chicken pizza.

2017 Dry Creek Malbec

The 2017 Malbec is very rich and deeply colored, with intense aromas and flavors of black plum, blackberry, black-tea leaf, crushed violets and baking spices. This bold wine consists of soft tannins which lead to a nice finish with wonderful acidity. Pair this delicious rich wine with braised short ribs or a mushroom burger smothered with blue cheese and bacon. Enjoy it over the next three to six years.

2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

This powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillsides of Alexander Valley has aromas of lush, red plum and dark berries that dominate the glass, while hints of cassis and milk chocolate play in the background. The dried fig and chewy tannins give this wine a strong backbone, while the 24 months of barrel aging have softened this bold wine just enough to enjoy now with a cheese and charcuterie board, filet mignon with grilled vegetables or a dark chocolate mousse. Drink over the next 5 to 7 years.
