2014 Rodney Strong Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley


Winemaker Notes

The 2014 Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir has lovely aromas of red fruit, floral and earth. With a soft and silky texture, on the palate cherry, cranberry, and baking spice characteristics shine through with balance, acidity and a nice lingering finish. This medium bodied wine was aged for 15 months in small French oak barrels, which added a hint of toasty vanilla and spice complexity.

Enjoy this Pinot Noir now with gruyere cheese and charcuterie, wild mushroom pizza or slow roasted pulled pork or cellar it for enjoyment for the next 2 to 4 years.

Critical Acclaim



Poised style offering aromas of cherries and and birch bark complementing a generous and uplifting palate of cherry fruit. Beautifully understated.

COMMENTARY: Pinot Noirs in the $20 range often vary in quality. Many of them can be too dark, too heavy, or too sweet to be correct. While those characters are sometimes appealing, they stray just a bit far from the purity of the grape variety. TASTING NOTES: The 2014 Rodney Strong Estate Pinot Noir is nicely done, and stays beautifully elegant in this grape variety's aroma and flavor zone. Pair its elegance with grilled chicken thighs.
