Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards opens with mild blueberry and black cherry bouquet with a hint of cola. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, round, elegant and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty gentle red plum with notes of nicely integrated fine minerality and maraschino cherry. I also detected hints of mild cola, white pepper and herbal tea. The finish is dry and its refined tannins and flavors drift away nicely. This graceful Pinot Noir would pair well with a filet mignon or fresh sliced Norwegian salmon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine possesses a deep ruby opaque color with a garnet red rim. On the nose, it offers aromas of bright Bing cherry with hints of licorice, subtle forest floor and open inviting notes of rose petal, vanilla and baking spices. Rich and lively upon entry, the mouth begins with fruit forward notes of crunchy raspberries and red cherries. Silky tannins are supported by well-balanced acidity and mocha notes throughout a long finish. Pair with a mushroom risotto.
