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 protective sizzle paper.
2019 Alexander Valley Zinfandel
Ruby red colored, with fresh aromas of ripe blackberries, cherry pie, black pepper and dusty earth, this full bodied wine was aged for 18 months in primarily French oak barrels, which added layers of toast and baking spices. Elegant and silky, this wine has refined tannins and is extremely well balanced. Enjoy this Zinfandel now with Manchego cheese, bacon wrapped dates or spiced barbecue dishes, or cellar for enjoyment over the next two to four years.
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.
2019 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.
