Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards is very good. It opens with a blackberry and oak like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, rich and smooth. The flavor profile is a toasted oak and blackberry blend with notes of black plum. I also detected a touch of black olive. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate well-managed tannins linger for quite a while. This voluptuous Pinot Noir is very drinkable on its own. I would pair it with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2015 vintage is classic Klopp through and through. The aroma is packed with mouthwatering, brambleberry fruit in all its forms: fresh berries, jam and pie! Its sanguine complexion is augmented by black raspberry, cola, ripe fig and Bing cherry. Plush, toasty French oak is nicely integrated and plays a supporting role along with rich, dark chocolate. Pair with pork tenderloin with seasonal dried fruit.
Note: This artisanal Pinot Noir may contain a gift of wine diamonds – natural tartrate crystals resulting from an abundance of potassium in this vintage. These may be found as a ring below the cork or may have gathered around the punt of the bottle. If you wish, simply decant to remove these burgundy-colored crystals and enjoy!
