The 2011 vintage is an absolute knockout! Its mouthwatering, intense aroma is full of syrupy cassis, luscious black raspberry, ripe blueberry and crushed sweet black cherry. Layers of cocoa, sweet tobacco and Bergamot tea add depth and complexity. The rich, sleek palate is intriguing with its grainy, smooth yet powerful tannins and seemingly endless finish. Like its predecessors, this captivating Pinot will age brilliantly.
"Only great wineries can succeed in a brutally challenging vintage like 2011, and Merry Edwards did. This wine is not completely approachable now, being all dryness, tannins and acidity. Notes of wild mushrooms, brown rice, red licorice, cola, clove and white pepper frame the essential core of sour cherry candy. Drink 2019 and beyond. Cellar Selection
