Product Description

Tasting Notes

Warmly opulent and sophisticated, this is an intense, inviting Pinot. It’s packed with ripe cherry, strawberry fruit leather, bramble-berry and blueberry. This fruit expression is heightened by anise, earthy notes, well-integrated toasty oak, and a whisper of violets and white flower blossoms. Upon opening, the highly structured palate shows an energising interplay between bright, lively acidity and generous, silky tannins. It then broadens and mellows into a lingering, satisfying finale. Aromas follow through, providing a dynamic flavour spectrum and a peppery finish.

Wine Press

95 Points - Wine Review Online

"This weighty Pinot Noir opens on the nose with an intriguing floral note, followed on the palate by expressive layers of cherry and raspberry. With firm but beautifully integrated tannins, it is an impressive example of a powerful Pinot built for the long haul yet ready to drink now."

94 Points  - Wine Enthusiast

Supple in tannin and earthy in black tea, this appellation wine is delicious, with depth and freshness. Lively acidity boosts a core of dark cherry, pomegranate and cherry—the fruit well contrasted in nutmeg and clove.

About the Producer

Merry Edwards is like her wines – an intricate blend of artistic vision and scientific training, with a passion for the natural environment.

With five decades of winemaking experience, Merry has earned the universal respect of winemaking peers, grape growers and scholars alike. Her pioneering work in clonal research has forever changed the Californian wine industry, and her UCD clone 37, or “Merry Edwards Selection”, has been a star performer in the Russian River valley since she established it in 1975.

At home in the Russian River Valley since 1977, Merry Edwards has meticulously explored its hills, pockets, slopes and hollows, discovering small sites which, with the right rootstock, clone and farming techniques, produce exceptional quality grapes. Merry Edwards has been Certified Sustainable since 2017 and all wines are vegan friendly.

Sustainability is ‘a way of life’ at Merry Edwards, who have been Certified Sustainable since 2017. Merry believes that “terroir is not simply longitude, latitude and soil type, but also reflects the input of the farmer”. These ‘inputs’ include organic composts, biodegradable vineyard products, ‘a bevy of roses’, insect-friendly cover crops, flower borders and floral borders, which act as natural pest control. Deficit irrigation only feeds the vines during times of water stress, all green waste is recycled back into the estate and the winery has been 100% powered by solar energy since panels were installed in 2010.
