Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards opens with a fragrant black cherry bouquet with a hint of oak and black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced, juicy and very easy to enjoy. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum with notes of oak and strawberry licorice. I also detected a hint of cinnamon and faint red raspberry. The finish is dry and its dusty oak tannins are sticky and linger. This Pinot would pair well with a slow cooked prime rib roast. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a blend of grapes from five different vineyards located along the cool Sonoma County coast. This wine’s aromatic profile is attractive, showing a forward edge of warm brown spices, like cardamom and cinnamon, along with subtle, rich oak. As the wine opens, boysenberry and abundant red fruits - currants, plums and raspberries reveal themselves. Scents of violets and jasmine create lovely accents and complexity. In the mouth, a soft entry is followed by a smooth midpalate and a long, firm finish packed with spice and fruit. With nicely rounded tannins and good acid balance, this Pinot shows excellent aging potential.
