Wine Review: This bright ruby colored tribute Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards is very good and was recommended by the panel. It opens with a fragrant and attractive strawberry bouquet with hints of must and cherry-cola. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is strawberry rhubarb with hints of cherry pie, cola and caramel. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. The panel thought this wine was youthful and would blossom with time. If you can’t wait, they suggested pairing this very nice Pinot with fresh sliced Norwegian salmon with crème fraiche and dill. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: In 2011 I was once again inspired to make a special Pinot Noir in honor of my son Warren’s memory. The deep, dark color of this wine portends a bold and weighty Pinot. Savory roasted coffee and toasty oak complement a concentrated core of blueberry jam and blackberry pie. Layers of cassis, boysenberries, blue plums, cocoa and a touch of licorice expand this first impression. The rare Angel Wing productions are meant to last, like memories, a very long time. We experience this potential in the ripe palate full of chewy tannins, which over time will soften and build an even more extended, rich finish. Please raise a glass of Angel Wing and celebrate the lives of those we love, remembering that once planted in our hearts, love lives forever.
