Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot from Merry Edwards is a fruit bomb. It opens with a fragrant strawberry rhubarb and black plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, fruit forward, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tart plum with notes of musty old oak and black raspberry jam. I also detected a touch of creme de cassis. The finish is dry and its lush fruit flavors linger for quite some time. This wine is still very young and does benefit from some air. So I would pair it with pork tenderloin after decanting it for at least 30 minutes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Immediately mouthwatering, this coastal wine's beguiling aroma displays fresh blueberries, huckleberries and dark crushed raspberries. The showy, luscious fruit is fresh and lifted, laced with scents of lavender and sweet foxglove. Brooding dark cherry adds complexity, heightened even further by a touch of cinnamon, cardamom and kirsch. On the palate, tannins are firm, yet smooth and balanced, creating a long, silky finish. Appealing now, this Pinot will develop even more grace with aging.
