A bit light on the nose with nuanced earth, smoke and cola aromas floating over a base of slightly tarry blackberry fruit. Bright on entry with a little sweet tart interplay going on quickly leading to some candied flavors of vanilla and caramel which form a base under bright red fruit on the palate. The fruit lacks a little intensity here, and while this is smooth and well balanced its a little bit more about the wood than the fruit today with drying, chalky tannins outlasting the fruit on the modest finish. This holds its alcohol well though there is a touch of alcoholic sweetness on the palate, which many people will find appealing. 84pts

Supple in texture, with rose petal and red fruit aromas, this lively, medium bodied wine is aged entirely in French oak, which adds a subtle, toasty vanilla character and a hint of spice. Ideal for current enjoyment, this pinot noir will hold nicely over the next two to three years.

Rod Strong was among the first modern wine pioneers with a vision to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley. in 1968, he planted our heritage River East Vineyard in the alluvial clay-loam soils adjacent to the winery in Healdsburg.
