Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards opens with blueberry and boysenberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe black raspberry and oak blend with notes of black pepper and plum. The finish is dry and its flavors are very nicely prolonged. This fruit driven Pinot will be a crowd pleaser and would pair perfectly with Kerrygold Dubliner cheese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2011 Pinot Noir is a wonderful example of these converging influences. The wine’s vibrant aroma melds intense fruit with savory characteristics. Mouthwatering cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and cola are complemented by accents of lightly roasted coffee, cocoa and fresh earth. Its substantial structure supports a generous amount of new oak, adding white pepper, toasty cinnamon and vanilla to its many layers. The wide palate is smooth and rich with an extended finish that just goes on and on.
