A touch sweet, creamy and heavy Pinot
Description: Medium light garnet to ruby in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features cedar, cherry pie, plum, rhubarb, dates and vanilla. Full body with low tannings, medium acidity and a fairly long length.
Negatives: Too sweet for me
Interesting Note: It seems like every second year Rodney Strong puts out a subpar Pinot, this vintage is it.
Drink now or in the next 2 years on its own or pair it with duck paté
