Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Rod Strong was among the first modern wine pioneers with a vision to plant Pinot Noir in the Russian River Valley. In 1968 he planted our heritage River East Vineyard in the alluvial clay-loam soils adjacent to the winery in Healdsburg. Today the Russian River Valley is well established as one of the premier Pinot Noir growing regions in the world, and we continue to rely on the original River East Vineyard as a core contributor to our estate vineyard bottling.

Winemaker's Notes

Drink now through 2013. Wine Tasting Notes Soft and rich, with layers of red cherry, raspberry, cola, caramel, and a hint of Asian spice, this impressive, full-bodied wine is aged in 100% French oak, which adds an elegant toasty vanilla character. Enjoy this voluptuous pinot noir now and over the next read more...Wine Spectator Review Rated 93 Tight and compact, with dark, potent, concentrated fruit that fleshes out, with mineral, dried dark berry fruit, spice and tobacco notes, gaining body and complexity.

    오픈한 뒤의 느낌은 약간 씁쓸. 오픈하고 30분쯤 지나니 상당히 부드러워지지만, 동시에 많이 밋밋해진다. 특별한 특징이 없는 무난한 와인. 함께한 음식은 굽네 순살 치킨
