2009 Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Estate Vineyards

Community Tasting Notes 65
April 28, 2014 - Limpid cherry colour.
Perfumed nose of petals of rose and liquor cherries. A bit four-squared.
Palate is savoury yet uncomplicated. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Nice bitterness.
If compared with last 2006 La Crema this is quite similar but just a step down.
Paired with well-aged Parmesan Reggiano. Yes, cheese was superior...
De color cereza transparente.
Nariz perfumada a pétalos de rosa y cerezas en licor. Un poco cuadriculada.
La boca es sabrosa aunque sin complejidades. La textura corresponde a un vino de cuerpo medio. Rica amargura.
Si la comparamos con la última La Crema 2006 es bastante simple pero sólo un escalón por debajo.
Acompañó un Parmesano añejo. El queso estaba superior...

April 1, 2014 - Quite a good wine for the price point. Must be the RRV influence. Good dirt, that. Wish I had more than one more bottle left!

December 11, 2013 - For a $15 pinot it was very good and went well with take-out Greek. It's not a pahlmeyer but like I said it was $15.

October 3, 2013 - pale red with aromas of earth and mushrooms, flavors of coffee, oak, earth, and licorice. Not a lot of fruit. Light in body and tannin, vibrant acidity, long finish. complex.

May 31, 2013 - Nice body and deep color for a Pinot. Cherry, oak, vanilla and some light spice. This is a good solid wine but may be overly oaked for may. Nice acid, tannin, fruit balance with a long finish.
