Rodney Strong Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2013
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine EnthusiastA feral, somewhat sauvage aroma of pungent earth opens this wine, followed by notes of bay leaf and mint. Spicy and vibrant in red fruit, it is buoyed and balanced by acidity that keeps this full-bodied wine from ever seeming weighed down. This wine also offers good value.
Wine SpectatorThis red delivers berry flavors with a slight baked edge and tannins that are dry and gritty. Good but short on finesse. Drink now. 130,000 cases made.
