Wine Review: This India ink colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards is very good. It opens with a ripe black raspberry jam bouquet with hints of boysenberry and ripe black plum. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry with notes of blackberry and nicely integrated gentle minerality. I also detected hints of plum, olive and oak towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Pinot is food friendly and easy to drink. I would pair it with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Since its bottling last August, this Pinot has developed an exciting, intense aroma loaded with its signature cocoa butter. It's syrupy and thick with blueberry jam, black cherry, dark bramble fruit and cassis. It's a one-cooper wine, preferring to age comfortably each year in only Francois Freres barrels, which impart notes of exotic spices, thick-cut bacon and prosciutto. The palate shows off a rich, ripe entry and then reveals a long, smooth finish, supported by good acidity. Tannins are firm, yet juicy and generous, providing great structure and ageability.
