Rodney Strong 2019 Rosé of Pinot Noir - 92 points, Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast Sell Sheet with Reviews
92 points, Editors' Choice

2019 Rosé of Pinot Noir

"This wine continues to impress year after year. It's a stainless-steel, cold-fermented bottle of fruity goodness, with complexity to spare. Fresh and lively, it shines in clean, focused flavors of wild strawberry, melon and pineapple, retaining citrus-driven acidity throughout." - Virginie Boone

2016 600L Cabernet Sauvignon

"A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot from the 2,040 foot-elevation Cooley Ranch Sky High Vineyard, this is named for the 600-liter barrel in which the wine is fermented. Salt and oak tones support a wealth of black fruit and crushed rock flavors. It is supple and complex in structure, with years to go in the bottle. Enjoy from 2026 - 2031."

92 points, Best Buy

2017 Chalk Hill Chardonnay

"With its mineral freshness and apple-skin spice, this is a clean and powerful Chardonnay, that power driven by some reduction that keeps the wine tight. Give it time in a decanter to open up, then serve as an aperitif with poached prawns." - J.G.
