Wine Review: Georganne is consistently a solid offering from Merry Edwards. The 2013 is another winner. It is a pitch black colored Pinot Noir that opens with a faint new leather and mild blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a very tasty black plum and minerality blend with notes of blackberry. I also detected hints of mild oak and touch of black licorice. The finish is dry and its mild dusty tannins are nicely prolonged. This bold Pinot will appeal to fans of big red wines. Decant a bottle in the near term and serve it with a dry aged ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: With the current vintage, Georganne shows off a rather saucy demeanor. The dark ruby color is the first indication of the depth of fruit extraction. As an opening salvo, the dense aroma is packed with mouthwatering sweet cassis, wild blackberry pie and chocolate-dipped black cherries with a glimmer of rose and lilac. Savory notes of umami, fresh earth and toasted almond add to this rich core. The palate is broad and dynamic, setting the stage for long-term aging with its generous tannins, soft oak richness and lifted finish.
