Certificate MAGNUM (1.5L), Rodney Strong Vineyards Brothers, Cabernet Sauvignon
1.5 ltr 2014 Brothers Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 Brothers is a deeply rich wine with complex dark fruit flavors. The wine is voluptuous and is bursting with blackberry, plum and wonderful chocolate notes followed by a round and seductive mid-palate and a long lingering finish. Enjoy this wine now or cellar it for enjoyment in 8 to10 years.
Rodney Strong Vineyards' owner, Tom Klein, named this vineyard to honor the first generation of Kleins in California. They were a hard-working set of brothers that established their family's rich tradition of farming and respecting the land.
Over 26 90+ Point Ratings; from 2006-2014 vintage.
In the hills to the southeast of the small town of Cloverdale, Brothers is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. It's on well-drained loam underlain by sandstone, shale and ancient greenstone.
Its elevations, surpassing 1000 feet, and its primarily western aspect perfectly situate the vines to capture the full warmth and light of the afternoon sun, ripening Cabernet well into the black fruit profile, with exceptional richness and creating perhaps our most opulent single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
