Rodney Strong Pinot Noir

Humus, pomegranate, and cola waft up on the nose. Black cherry, cola, and mushrooms give brightness and depth to the palate. Citrus peel and spices add layers on the mid-palate. Tannins are structured, acids in balance. Drink with pork medallions. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH
