Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards opens with a black cherry bouquet with hints of oak, peppers and chestnut. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a plum and black raspberry blend with notes of oak and cola. I also detected some hints of black pepper. The finish is dry and its bold dusty tannins stick around for a very long time. This Pinot would pair well with braised wild boar or teriyaki meatballs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our senses are greeted with a volley of sweet, ripe fruit featuring dark cherry, black Catalina plum, rich olallieberry and warm blackberry compote. This is quickly followed by fragrant scents of David Austin rose, red licorice, cola, cumin, coriander and milk chocolate. The entry is broad, full and succulent, with velvety tannins unfolding on the middle palate. Balanced, lively and firm, intensity continues to build toward the lightly toasted, lush finish. Klopp is always a wonderful wine to age, if you can wait!
