2005 Rodney Strong Reserve Jane’s Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $45. The grapes are from a more recent planting of Pinot Noir in honor of owner Tom Klein’s mother. · A veritable spice cabinet in the nose along with crushed cherries and a hint of toast. Nicely weighted and balanced, this easy drinker has plenty of spiced cherry, clove and oak flavors with a tart finish. Reviewed December 16, 2007
