The Symmetry Meritage from Rodney Strong is a beautiful blend of all five noble varietals. It is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Frank, 5% Malbec and 2% Petite Verdot. The 2012 vintage started off warm and dry, with little to no frost. By mid-summer people were beginning to whisper about how perfect the growing season was going. Rain-free warm days and cool nights were the rule, with no storms or heat spikes.
