Wine Review: Merry Edwards has another winner with this offering from the Russian River Valley. It is a brilliant dark ruby in color. It opens with a mild red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this Pinot is medium bodied, very well balanced, and really smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty strawberry with notes of black raspberry. The finish is dry and its fine and very well managed tannins are very nicely prolonged. This wine would pair nicely with a pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The personality of this wine conveys a strikingly pure fruit character. The deep garnet color is a prelude to its ripe, dark fruity aroma. Nearly all the descriptors common to Pinots from our Valley come to mind – black cherry, cola, blueberry, black currant and raspberry are tinged with rich cocoa, chocolate and nutmeg. Each time you return to the glass, another intriguing layer reveals itself. The rich fruit carries forward into a boldly structured palate which is bright yet smooth with a seamless, luxurious finish.
