Rosy, smoky Pinot Noir from Russian River

2014 Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

Rodney Strong’s 2014 Pinot Noir is dark and rosy, offering a scent of deep rose petals and smoked earth plus a whiff of ripe tomato. The palate’s sharp red fruits—mostly cherry, bramble berries, and sun-dried tomato—are adorned by pronounced toasty, almost bacon-y barrel influence. The wine is savory toward the finish.

Pair it with smoked or roasted meats, dark meat poultry, or aged cheeses, especially well aged, like old Gouda. Vegetarians will want mushrooms or roasted eggplant and tomato dishes.
