Winemaker Notes

This Rosé of Pinot Noir is beautifully colored, with fresh, vibrant aromas and flavors of strawberry, white peach, and jasmine. Brilliant and bright with fresh acidity and a wonderful lasting juicy finish.

Enjoy with goat cheese, fresh seafood dishes, and summer salads.

COMMENTARY: Looking at the numbers and talking to consumers, Rosé wine is still on fire, and while many of these wines are good, only a handful of them stand out as excellent to outstanding. The 2018 Rodney Strong Vineyards Rosé of Pinot Noir is an elite wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers an excellent balance between charming and serious. Its aroma and flavors of raspberry and strawberry should pair it deliciously with Cantonese cold-boiled chicken accented with red pepper flakes. (Tasted: January 24, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast

Flavors of candied orange peel, raspberry and strawberry shine in this rosé sourced from the producer’s estate. Stainless steel fermented, it has a punch of acidity that makes it quaffable and fresh.

Russian River Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

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.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
