2005 Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Reserve Jane's Vineyard

The color was a darker brick with nice tears in the glass. Nose of spice, cherry, pine straw or forest floor. Flavor of cherry, plum, and hints of chocolate. The finish was quite long considering the age. I think it held up remarkably well.

Solid dark oak driven Cabernet, very commercial and very uniform with some good fruit and varietal notes. Overall it was without much finesse and after a few pours became less interesting to the point of pushing it away. This was a wedding wine.

Popped and poured. Big nose of ripe, dark berry fruit, cassis, charred, spicy oak and a touch of chocolate. Similar flavors on the palate with a very rich mouthfeel and layers of dark fruit with toasted oak and bitter dark chocolate. Good acidity and tannins were in balance. Long finish. Really delicious and well made cab but at the higher end of the price range for wines that deliver similar results.

A food friendly Pinot grown in gravelly soils with warm afternoons and cooler nights. Toasty, spicy vanilla flavour from French oak. Smooth texture, light body, dryness, and moderate acidity, with rose petal, raspberry, pomegranate, and red cherry flavours. Rated 90 by Wine Enthusiast. Carbon neutral, sustainable, fish friendly farming. Drink now to 2017.

Decent Pinot...nothing special...but at the same time drinks nicely and no surprises. Would buy again for a weeknight drinker.

This wine didn't show well tonight and it's definitely not because it's DONE, but it was just very restained and had a very thin presentation. Uncorked to a very lovely gingerbread cookie and blackberry and baking spice on both the very dark stained cork and on the nose. Poured a deep maroon into the glass. Decanted about an hour and served over an hour. Nose was actually the nicest part of this wine. Upon the entry, it was flat. Fruit seemed to be there, but not as punchy. A little while back I was thrilled to enjoy a 2006 of this wine, and it was 1000% more dense and complex than this was. It wasn't corked. It still had a nice middle, a good finish, but was just subdued. I really wish I had another few of these so that I could open another one next year, and then the year after that. No such is luck. Seemed to get perhaps a bit more interesting towards the second hour but was still a little underwhelming. I am not going to lie, I am a little disappointed in this wine tonight, but reserve a rating as I think (compared to library vintages) that this one is just in a strange place. Drink with caution at present, or decant 3+ hours (perhaps that's what this one needs is a ton of air at present).

Part of the blind Sonoma cab taste test and way my #1 pick for both taste and smell. Strong black and red fruits and a heavy oak finish.

Citrus and mint on the nose with grassy, meyer lemon notes. Soft and juicy mouth feel makes this wine very drinkable, but could use some more acidity.

Symmetry Is always a personal favorite, consistently, balance, and elegance always come to mind when I enjoy this wine. In spite of the tough vintage, I think they did a fairly good job to maintain the house style. Never over the top or too jammy; in fact the cool vintage provably produced more earthy and green notes, but still enough red and black fruit to make the wine very enjoyable. Very good.

75/13/5/5/2 Cabernet/Merlot/Cab Franc/Malbec/Petit Verdot. Medium nose shows herbal notes, black fruit, slight fresh tobacco or earth, oak notes. Palate is fresh, round, obvious, black plum, black cassis, dark chocolate, vanilla, very primary, lots of delicious layers, pretty spot on Napa blend at this price point. Acidity medium, tannins medium plus, finish medium plus. Good, but hopefully gets more complexity with time.

Transparent brick red. Cherry, raspberry, and oak spice on the medium intensity nose. On the palate, the oak spice hits along with a light tannins and medium body and medium plus acidity. The spice supports red fruit flavours and some earthy undertones (mushroom and hints of juniper). The finish is medium to short with cranberry and baking spices coming across from oak that is just above overdone and with some alcohol burn. A definite new world style Pinot.

Popped and poured; could've used an hour decant time and might have scored higher. Cork crumbled upon opening, but no sediment was present. Probably has a few years left.

Sweet red fruit on the New World nose, with an inviting suggestion of bacon fat. Not as sappy on the palate, with earthy elements and tasty fruit pushing through the obvious oak treatment on the finish. Certainly respectable.
