Winemaker's Notes:

The first clue to the exceptional nature of this vintage is reflected in the deep garnet color of this Pinot. Then follows the strikingly impressive aroma - ripe and rich, packed with dark cherry, blue plum and lingonberry. Cola and cocoa powder dust the fragrance along with floral notes and a savory undercurrent. The largess of the fruit spills over into the palate resulting in a deeply succulent mouth-feel. There is a sophisticated balance here, found in the seamless evolution of this wine from start to finish.

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.
