Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards open with a black raspberry bouquet with a hint of clove and black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slight acidic and savory. The flavor profile is blackberry with notes of clove and oak. I also detected hints of black pepper and black raspberry in the background. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors are nicely prolonged. I would pair this Pinot with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Some wonderful wines came out of the 2015 vintage, including this Pinot, which reflects the compelling profile of our home appellation. Ripe red raspberries, blueberry pie, dark cherry preserves and blue plums vie for attention in the intense aroma. Floral scents of lilac and roses are apparent along with cola, milk chocolate and savory mushrooms. Fine French oak frames all this abundance, providing lushness without being overbearing. Generous fruit spills over into the palate. Added to this are flavors of artisanal chocolate-hazelnut spread, fig compote, lingonberries and cocoa powder. The acidity is lively - the mouthfeel is full and juicy - the finish long. Every swirl of the glass reveals more, promising long life for this Pinot Noir.
