ABOUT THE WINE

Rodney Strong was one the pioneers of Sonoma County’s modern wine industry, a visionary who understood the potential that Sonoma County’s soil and climate held for producing world-class wines. Now under the care of Proprietor Tom Klein and Winemaker Justin Seidenfeld, Rodney Strong Vineyards carries this legacy forward by continuing to craft wines that achieve critical acclaim and express Sonoma County terrior.

As a testament to its well-known Left Bank Bordeaux-style blend, Symmetry, our winemaker has created a St. Emilion, Cheval Blanc-inspired blend called Serenity. This one-of-a-kind Cabernet Franc-based blend from four different prized vineyards in Sonoma County delivers layers of complex red and dark fruits, with a refined tannin structure that is extremely food friendly. It’s a wine for collectors who seek showstopping flavors and ageabililty.
