Quick Overview

Cassis and black raspberry are rich and dark on the nose. Equally concentrated in the mouth, the fruit is dark and intense, enhanced by charred wood and mineral rich soil. A hint of earthy mushroom and herbs comes through on the spicy finish

Details

Always one of the top Meritage wines produced in California and Rodney Strong's flagship, Symmetry is a wine whose name sums up what it's all about. To make Symmetry select areas within each of their many Alexander Valley vineyards where they have grown Bordeaux varietals for over 40 years, are hand harvested, fermented separately and aged in the finest French oak barrels. After about six months, each lot is tasted and graded; only the highest graded wines are considered for Symmetry. The blend is then assembled, and the wine is returned to barrels to facilitate flavor integration. The wine is aged an additional 10 to 18 months, before bottling. Consulting Enologist David Ramey oversee the entire process. For this stellar 2013 vintage the blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot and the French oak barrels were 37% new. Robert Parker said about this wine "The 2013 Proprietary Red Symmetry, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, exhibits chocolaty, blackberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with earth and spice characteristics, medium body and a supple, round, seductive mouthfeel. Elegant and mid-weight, it is best drunk over the next 7-8 years." And this classy red blend scoreed 93 points in the Ultimate Wine Challenge. They said "Cassis and black raspberry are rich and dark on the nose. Equally concentrated in the mouth, the fruit is dark and intense, enhanced by charred wood and mineral rich soil. A hint of earthy mushroom and herbs comes through on the spicy finish."
