Winemaking Notes

Our Rodney Strong winemaking team has been growing Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon since the early 1970s, when Rod Strong first planted both varietals in the heart of Alexander Valley. Today, we continue to grow grapes that display the deep dark flavors and mature tannins typical of these noble varietals. Sonoma County is where Rod Strong set his roots and today the Klein family upholds the tradition of crafting exceptional wines from this iconic growing region.

This rich supple wine bursts with blackberry and dark cherries with hints of spice followed by lush, rounded tannins and a lingering finish.

Varietal Composition:
81% Merlot
15% Cabernet Sauvignon,
4% Cabernet Franc

History

The Vineyards

The 2019 vintage started with copious amounts of rain saturating the soil in late winter, with even more rain lasting through spring. A hot June facilitated vine growth followed by a considerable heat spike in August, pushing the sugars up and allowing the berries to develop ripe flavors. With everything in balance, harvest took place October 1st to the 18th.
