Red Wine

Rodney Strong Wine Estates Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California, United States: A deep, dark and big California Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of Malbec and Cabernet Franc from Knights Valley, and one of the most eastern and warmest of Sonoma's AVAs. Intense with blackberry, cassis, dark cherry and crushed raspberry flavours ripe and smooth on the palate. Separated from the Pacific by the Coastal Ranges and the Mayacamas Mountains this area does not experience any of the cooling fogs and breezes for which much of Sonoma is known. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: hearty meat dish, chicken, braised lamb.
