Wine Review: This bright cherry offering from Merry Edwards opens with a sautéed mushroom and light wood like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a soft cherry with a touch of oak on the back palate. The finish is dry and it is slightly prolonged. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A consistent star in our portfolio since the first vineyard designate in 1999, there has been no holding back the intensity of this Pinot’s mouthwatering aroma. Packed with blackberry, dark cherry, black raspberry and Santa Rosa plum, this wine virtually explodes out of the glass. It’s full of ripe, luscious fruit and cola with accents of toasted oak and cocoa. On the palate, the tannins are powerful, yet lush and smooth, another hallmark of this wine’s ageable nature. This juicy, delicious wine is bold enough to accompany a traditional standing prime rib. Many Klopp fans tell us that this Pinot even pairs well with dark chocolate truffles!
