Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards is very nice. It opens with a pomegranate and cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine has a very impressive mouthfeel. It is medium bodied, round and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty blend of red plum and pomegranate with notes of cinnamon and craisin along with hints of oak and a dash of black pepper at the end. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Pinot is food friendly and very easy to drink, I would serve it with coq au vin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: In 2016, our Sonoma Coast blend combines eight individual lots of wine grown at five distinctive vineyard sites. This Pinot has an aroma suffused with Queen Anne cherries, red and gold raspberries, blueberries and plums. Balancing this abundant fruit is a savory side featuring aged Italian salami, prosciutto, rosemary, mushroom and black tea. Notes of Grand Marnier, cinnamon spice, cracked black pepper and lightly smoked oak add even more depth. On the dense entry, fine tannins build a sweet, mellow palate. It's laced with brown spices, a hint of bramble, cocoa powder and a bit of cranberry. One might even find a hint of the blood orange and lemon-infused Averna Amaro from Sicily, which provides additional depth. An elegant, well-balanced wine, the finish is firm and focused. You might be surprised by how well this coastal Pinot will develop in your cellar.
