Wine Review: This ruby colored Pinot Noir from Merry Edwards was well liked by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a black cherry-cola and black plum bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a concentrated black raspberry and plum blend with notes of dark chocolate and oak. We also detected hints of black pepper and craisin mixed in. The finish is dry and it lingers nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Pinot with pulled pork or a rack of lamb. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This garnet-hued beauty dazzles us from the outset with generous brambleberry fruit, blackberry liqueur, ripe blue plums, blueberries, cherries and black currants. This opening salvo is followed by savory charcuterie and chanterelles, caramel, cocoa, anise, fennel and white pepper. White roses, wild strawberries, raspberries, framboise liqueur, cinnamon and vanilla drift over like an echo onto the palate. Its big entry displays ripe tannins, while the body is lush, bold and powerful. This Pinot is juicy and approachable, yet lengthens and broadens, building intensity through the dynamic, extended finish. As with previous vintages, this wine benefits and rewards the patient collector as it unfolds over time.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
