Wine Review: 2007 Rockaway Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley

This wine has a deep dark garnet color.  The nose has aromas of ripe dark fruit with hints of spice. The palate has juicy dark red fruit flavors, perhaps blackberries, and red plums along with hints of cedar and coconut. The mouth feel is lush, with very smooth tannins and the wine has a long finish. I paired this wine with a rib eye steak grilled with a few sprigs of rosemary, steak fries and a wonderful Romaine lettuce, and tomato salad topped with a few special toppings. This wine would also pair well with other beef dishes as well as blue cheese, Cahill Porter cheese and aged cheddar cheeses.  Note:  This wine was a sample provided by Rodney Strong Vineyards.  SRP $75.00
