Merry Edwards Russian River Valley, California, Pinot Noir 2017


Tasting Notes: Ripe red raspberries, blueberry pie, dark cherry preserves and blue plums vie for attention in the intense aroma. Floral scents of lilac and roses are apparent along with cola, milk chocolate and savory mushrooms. Fine French oak frames all this abundance, providing lushness without being overbearing. Generous fruit spills over into the palate. Added to this are flavors of artisanal chocolate-hazelnut spread, fig compote, lingonberries and cocoa powder. The acidity is lively – the mouthfeel is full and juicy – the finish long.

Connoisseurs’ Guide 90ps: This bottling is very close to classic save for its early availability and only limited aging potential. It is medium-full to full on the palate and near to smooth save for some finishing firmness, and  it does invite enjoyment now.

Food Pairing: Try pairing with a hearty Minestrone stew. Serve with a hunk of whole grain artisan-style bread for dipping. Add a salad of butterleaf lettuce, avocados and mandarin oranges tossed with a creamy, mustard-laced vinaigrette. This makes for a light and healthy early spring dinner.
