Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards opens with a boysenberry and blackberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, concentrated and savory. On the palate, the flavor profile is a ripe plum and blackberry jam blend with hints of black raspberry and mild oak. The finish is dry and its mild to moderate tannins fade away nicely. This Pinot is a big boy for the category. Cab drinkers will like this one. Fans of delicate Pinots should probably look elsewhere. For those that really like this style, pair it with a thyme infused pork tenderloin and enjoy. - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The current vintage is classic Klopp through and through. The inviting, intense aroma is loaded with dark brambleberry, rich cherry and black raspberry. This bold fruit is laced with savory, toasty vanilla and star anise along with notes of cola and dark cacao. In the mouth, it reveals firm, substantial yet smooth tannins giving the finish an unctuous feel.
