Today’s blog was fueled by a glass of 2002 Rodney Strong Symmetry Meritage from Alexander Valley. It’s a fantastic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. This bottle sells for $60 retail but I got it for less because I brought a case back from a recent trip to wine country. I’m celebrating because my precocious granddaughter took her first steps today! She’s not quite 11 months old – but she’s already on her way to explore the world. Cheers and best wishes to this incredible baby girl.
