Community Tasting Note

    September 9, 2012 - Transparent ruby hued with a light body, the Rodney Strong Estate Vineyards Pinot Noir has a nose that features lightly charred oak, strawberry, rich earthy tones, and vanilla. Smooth and light on its feet, it has tastes of tart cherries, healthy minerality, and a little hint of cinnamon. Not the sweet kind, like in a cinnamon roll, but sharp zing of a hard cinnamon candy. The finish is short, with cherries, oak, and cinnamon. This ones seems best right out of the bottle. Not an over-performer, but a sold Pinot Noir in the below $20 price range.
