Review: *** $$ Rodney Strong Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, California, n/v

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Rodney Strong Pinot Noir.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Ahh, Russian River Pinot Noir, an American classic!

Original tasting and review : This is Rodney Strong Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, California, unidentified vrecent vintage served at a restaurant.

In the glass: Medium ruby red.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, bold and layered aromatics in the furry-purple category.  From the aroma, seems like this will be tangy, fresh, perhaps a bit tart, but still with American-style Pinot depth.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact slightly dry red cherry followed by an almost citrus wash.  Clean, fresh.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
