2012 Rodney Strong Estate Pinot Noir

Slightly garnet in color with a nose of red berries. On the mid palate the wine displays some mild rustic notes along with some raspberries backed by some solid tannins and acidity. On the medium length finish the wine displays some firm tannins and some spicy notes. This is definitely a bigger pinot. I would give it an 88 or so.
