Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2012
Soft and silky, with intriguing rose petal and crushed pomegranate aromas, this medium bodied wine was aged for 10 months in small French oak barrels, which added a hint of toasty vanilla and spice complexity. Ideal for current enjoyment, this Pinot Noir will age nicely over the next two to four years.
Light in color and body, pinot with main flavors of ripe red cherry and smoke. Less body than I like. Short finish to speak of. Lacks complexity, especially at this price.
I was pleasantly surprised by this complex wine that has the perfect finish.
External Reviews for Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
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.
This food-friendly Pinot Noir has a light body, dryness and crisp acidity that make it easy to pair with steaks, chops, salmon, mushroom risotto and similar fare. There’s nothing shy, however, about the flavors, which brim with ripe raspberries, cherries and pomegranates, accented with toasty, spicy oak. Drink now–2017.
