2018 Rodney Strong Estate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Garnet in color with a bold red cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine packs a punch with bold vibrant cherries, and rustic notes and long with some dark chocolate. On the medium length finish the wine displays some vibrant pepper notes, and strong acidity where the rustic notes live on … super dry. This is a BIG BOLD varietal pinot. It will easily keep a while, if you could wait, where I suspect it would soften and mature nicely. Right now I would give it a solid 88, albeit an edgy wine. From the LCBO web site, check stock:
