Winemaking Notes

A powerful red blend from the hillsides of Alexander Valley and high elevation
vineyards in rugged Northern Sonoma, this wine is lush with wild dark berries,
plum and minerality. The wine has a nice balance between fruit, earth and finishes.

History

Since 1959, our passion has been to craft best in class wines in our sustainable winery to share with friends and family. Our family-owned winery is committed to quality wines and to protecting our resources for the future. We are solar powered, certified sustainable, practice Fish Friendly Farming and we were the first winery in Sonoma County to offset our carbon footprint. With an eye on the future, innovation in the cellar and the vineyards is at the heart of all that we do.

Our Wine Club exclusive red blend is named for our Wine Club Coordinator, Katy Turner. Celebrating eighteen years with Rodney Strong Vineyards, Katy is the heart and soul of our club.

The Vineyards

The Alexander Valley AVA is 22 miles long, ranging in elevation from 150 to 1500 feet above sea level. We've determined the best blocks are typically located just below the ridge tops with a western facing aspect to capture the full warmth and light of the afternoon sun. Heat dominates in the northernmost hills near Brothers Vineyard, with average growing-season temperatures of 67 degrees, allowing Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen well. Cooley Vineyard is located in rugged northwestern Sonoma County above Lake Sonoma. The vineyard blocks are planted at high elevations ranging from 800-2,000 feet, on rocky, reddish clay loam volcanic soils.
