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.

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.

A standout region for its decidedly Californian take on Burgundian varieties, the Russian River Valley is named for the eponymous river that flows through it. While there are warm pockets of the AVA, it is mostly a cool-climate growing region thanks to breezes and fog from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme in Russian River, with the best examples demonstrating a unique combination of richness and restraint. The cool weather makes Russian River an ideal AVA for sparkling wine production, utilizing the aforementioned varieties. Zinfandel also performs exceptionally well here. Within the Russian River Valley lie the smaller appellations of Chalk Hill and Green Valley. The former, farther from the ocean, is relatively warm, with a focus on red and white Bordeaux varieties. The latter is the coolest, foggiest parcel of the Russian River Valley and is responsible for outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
