Grape variety: Pinot Noir

Producer: Merry Edwards Winery

Alcohol content: 14.4%

Origin: Sonoma Coast, California, USA

Notes: Forward and lively, this wine has an easy, inviting personality. Its feminine side shows dried rose petals and violets along with ripe, luscious strawberries, red raspberries, huckleberries and fresh berry compote. Its masculine dimension adds black currant, savory chanterelle, cardamom, oolong tea and sweet tobacco to the mix. All this is wrapped in a mantle of subtle, well-integrated French oak hinting of warm brown spices.

The palate is balanced and seamless, bright yet silky, juicy with a hint of minerality. Tannins are smooth and lush in the mouth, complemented by good acidity. There is hidden power behind its gentle exterior, indicating a long future for this Pinot Noir.

Critical acclaim

90 points "An easygoing, approachable wine with lush texture and characteristics of soy, black olive and forest floor, this wine leans savory and quite minerally, with spicy acidity giving it a kick on the palate. Savory and juicy, it expands on the finish into a lushness of velvety goodness." Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, July 2016

Food Pairing: Beef, Veal, Rabbit
