Blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 8% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, originally founded by Rod Strong in 1959. Deep Ruby color with aromas of dark fruit, floral and herbs. On the palate flavors of blackberry, cherry and currants with cacao, tobacco and oak notes. Full-body, well balanced with fine tannins on a long finish, ending with fruit, oak and spice. Very Nice!

The 2016 ‘Symmetry’ is a great melange of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller parts Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Once on the nose this takes on bell pepper and Turkish coffee tones with black florals and exotic spices that all take shape in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with medium to full-bodied dark fruits that mingle with espresso bean, minerals and salty terroir. Drink 2020-2032- 91

Positive experience with this Cabernet blend from Sonoma Valley. Balanced aroma and a good pair for meat
