Wine Review: This dark ruby colored wine from Merry Edwards was my favorite offering of the 3 Pinots I reviewed recently. This Pinot opens with a faint raspberry like bouquet with notes of butterscotch as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and has nice balance between its acidity and fruit. It is soft and smooth with juicy raspberry flavors with notes of chocolate. The finish is dry with moderate tannins that are well managed and nicely prolonged. This is a very enjoyable pinot and it would pair quite well with a pork tenderloin dish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The profile of our Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast emanates from its cool region parentage. Vineyards rooted within ten miles of the Pacific Ocean manifest this marine influence in the luminescent, sleek character they impart. Its bright aroma effuses floral accents of violets laced with blueberries, black raspberries and a hint of exotic brown spice. In the mouth, this graceful Pinot has firm yet approachable tannins. Mineral notes are dusted with sweet cocoa to complete the appealing palate. Somewhat shy when young, this coastal wine displays an intriguing complexity that will blossom with age.
