Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards is very good. It opens with a fragrant cherry-cola and plum bouquet with hints of boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a stewed plum with notes of oak, boysenberry and gentle minerality. I also detected hints of cola and dark chocolate. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins drift away nicely. This Pinot would pair well with smoked Boston pork butt. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This brilliant, burgundy-hued wine immediately offers up fragrances of mixed berries, Bing cherry, cola, candied violets and black tea along with exotic spices and dried herbs. On the palate, there is a compelling mix of broad tannins and minerality, along with a seductive measure of smoky oak balanced with juicy acidity. Black plum, brambleberry, cassis and wet slate create a layered and lingering finish.
