Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 grapes were wonderfully intense, allowing me to craft a luxurious wine with abundant charm and excellent aging potential. Mouthwatering aromas of blueberry, blackberry and black cherry set the stage for tiers of extravagant flavors. This sumptuous Pinot Noir is rich on the palate and has the tannin structure to age, making it ideal for collectors of full-bodied Pinots and appealing to lovers of big red wines.

About Merry Edwards:

In 1997, Merry Edwards established her eponymous brand with a focus on producing Pinot Noir from the finest vineyards in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. in 2008, she and her husband, Ken Coopersmith, completed their new winery on the site of the Coopersmith Vineyard. In addition to this property, their estate vineyards now include Cresta d'Oro, Flax, Georganne, Meredith Estate and Sanchietti. They continue to partner with several dedicated local growers to supplement this estate production. Along with the two regional blends, six vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs are bottled. In 2001, a barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc was added to the portfolio.
