Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Russian River 2009 750ml

Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Russian River

91 Points Wine Enthusiast: Made in a leaner, drier, lighter style than most Russian River Pinots, but the elegance and complexity are very attractive. Shows a white pepper and herbal note to the sour cherry candy fruit, and is balanced with perfect acidity. A beautiful wine to accompany, not overwhelm, fine foods.

Supple in texture, with rose petal and red fruit aromas, this lively, medium bodied wine is aged entirely in small French oak barrels, which adds a subtle, toasty vanilla character and a hint of spice. Ideal for current enjoyment, this pinot noir will hold nicely over the next 2 to 4 years.

Rodney Strong Vineyards was founded on the recognition of Sonoma County’s potential for excellence. It is purely place and character that matter the most. Grapes from each vineyard express their intrinsic personality based on the place where they grow. We gently craft them through to wine by careful use of barrel and stainless steel fermentation and proper oak aging to capture their essence – ultimately defining the character of Rodney Strong wines.

For the third year in a row, the 2009 vintage started off with a dry spring, which typically produces smaller clusters, smaller berries, and less canopy overall. Spring was mild enough to ward off frost this year, and vines affected from the previous year seemed to rebound. The main growing season was cool to warm and without incident. Picking commenced at the beginning of September, and all of our pinot noir was harvested by September 23rd.
