Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards opens with a mild blueberry and faint boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very smooth, and easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a tasty black plum with notes of acai and hints of black raspberry and oak towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are well managed and nicely prolonged. This Pinot would pair well with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: At the outset, this Pinot displays a decadent aroma resplendent with mouthwatering dark cherry. The pure cherry focus is heightened by accents of creme de cerise and framboise. White pepper, black currant, wild plums and cola add complexity, with all of this lushness framed in integrated, spicy oak. This wine shows its traditional firm, full finish with seamless acid balance, making it a continuing favorite for chefs. You may age this in your cellar quite happily for many rewarding years to come.
