Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merriam is very nice. It opens with a fragrant and attractive black plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a rich black plum with notes of black raspberry, black pepper and oak. I also detected hints of cola and minerality. The finish is dry and its fruit, spice and moderate tannins linger and last for quite a while. This Pinot is a big wine. It would pair well with a NY State strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright red hues, light floral aromas of lavender, rose petals and cherry. On the palate, a sense of a medium bodied pinot noir, dried fruit of cherry and sandalwood. Medium plus fruity tannins for long cellar aging. Three barrels produced.

Organic status: not organic
