Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards opens with a mulberry and low bush Maine blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused red plum with notes of strawberry and blueberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and dusty tannins linger and last for quite a while. The Panel suggested drinking this Pinot on its own or with dark chocolate. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Meredith's opaque purple color is our first sensory clue to its dramatic nature. The expansive fruit profile nearly leaps out of the glass with exotic wild berry, sweet brambleberry pie, boysenberry, raspberry fruit leather and lingonberry. Strong floral notes of roses and violets are joined by scents of oolong tea and spicy, toasted oak. A rich, full entry expands into a deep, bold palate which is broad in structure. Thick, mouth-coating tannins combined with mouthwatering acidity give this Pinot playful vitality and energy. The finish is memorable for its powerful elegance.
