Merry Edwards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016



The bouquet of this wine uncovers memories of ripening blackberry fields, berry compote and warm plum clafoutis. The complexity of frothed and aromatic Mexican chocolate, with its cinnamon, nutmeg, rich cocoa butter and nutty flavor is found here also. Wood-grilled meat, mushrooms and other earthy notes accompany the sweet, toasty and supportive oak. Smooth and round on the entry, the palate is powerful yet supple, imparting an impression of thickness. Tannins build tension across the body in line with a balanced acid profile. Generous fruit carries over from the aroma joined by dried fig, sarsaparilla and a lingering toastiness. Polished and firm on the finish, this wine has many years to unfold.

Wine EnthusiastHerbal and forested in savory elements like rose petal and black tea, this is a gorgeously rich and round red wine, a true showcase of the appellation and sure to please a crowd. Red and black cherry are met by wild strawberry and lush waves of depth.

Wine SpectatorFresh and snappy, this red is structured but a bit thin and austere. Drink now.
