(N0401-102) 17 RODNEY STRONG SONOMA CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $18.99
U.S. Newly Available 04/01
(stocked regularly) Wine & Spirits 92 - BEST BUY: 'A youthful, structured, savory red, it's hard to believe this wine is priced at $22. (At W&S, we assign scores with no knowledge of prices unless they are $20 or under). We opened this wine on a Thursday and by Saturday, it was still tight and firm, with juicy black-currant flavors and scents of herbs. As of Monday, it felt sumptuous and rich. Paige Dana of Cut in Beverly Hills tasted it that day and described the flavors as 'a bowl of super-juicy, dark, yummy fruit before it goes overripe.' This is not a complex wine with a lot of depth, but it is pretty extraordinary to find such delicious drinking for a third of what you might be asked to pay for a cabernet of equal stature.'

U.S. Newly Available 04/01
(stocked regularly) Wine & Spirits 92: 'Richly oaked, this wine takes several days to show itself.

Suited to long aging, this is a well-priced collectible grown by the Smith brothers, Stuart and Charles.'

It sustains a lovely vibrancy of flavor, grounded and direct. $40.'
