2007 Rodney Strong "Symmetry" Alexander Valley Bordeaux Blend ($39.99)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A great Bordeaux-style wine that can stand proudly next to Napa bottlings that cost far more. It's mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with the other four permitted Meritage varieties, and there seems to be lots of new, sweetly toasted oak. The blackberry, cherry, red currant, mocha and bacon flavors are delicious, but even better is the tannic structure. It's soft and alluring enough to drink now." (12/10) According to the Wine Spectator: "Rustic, tight and chewy, featuring intense dried currant and dark berry fruit, mineral, sage and dusty-cedary oak. This is full-bodied, ending with an oaky-chicory edge. Decant. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2012 through 2017." (11/10)
