Wine & Spirits"Rodney Strong's investments in hillside vineyards have been paying off in wines like this 2014, a blend based on cabernet sauvignon from the Brothers Vineyard in the hills above Geyserville. It includes small lots of merlot and petit verdot from estate properties in Alexander Valley, along with malbec and cabernet from Knights Valley. It's the clarity of the flavor that's most impressive-woodland cherry notes that capture the cool elevations of the fruit and a dark, foresty mushroom savor that amplifies the tannins. Silky and plump, with lasting intensity, this is a mouthwatering cabernet to serve with roast lamb."

Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Proprietary Red Symmetry has pretty red and black currants notes with touches of dried herbs, tilled soil and tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives up vibrant black fruits with a refreshing line and nice, chewy tannins, finishing on a mineral note.

Wine EnthusiastThis Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend includes smaller amounts of Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, in that order. Together, they offer a robust, oaky and soft expression of mild blue and black fruit, dusted in toasted oak and tobacco.

Wine SpectatorNotably herbal, with roasted bell pepper and sage notes amid a mix of dusty berry, loamy earth and woody elements. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Drink now through 2024.
