Rodney Strong Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2014

Russian River, Sonoma County, California, United StatesA new release from the Rodney Strong winemaking team, this focuses on Green Valley, one of the coolest parts of Sonoma Coast. On top of that, this has the unique Goldridge soil, giving this Green Valley pinot a different look. Aging for 10 months in French oak barrels, one third new, has left this expressive red with a medium red colour and a cool forest floor, rooty, earthy note that mixes well with its pomegranate and raspberry notes. The palate is warm and silky with a hint of cola and baking spices. New world but with adequate restraint to respect the variety.Tasted: 10 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 0.00 private wine shops Producer: Rodney Strong Estate VineyardsDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
