Winemaker's Notes:

#28 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

This luscious Sauvignon Blanc begins with a complex, mouthwatering aroma of golden delicious and honey crisp apples accented with crème brulée and sweet Meyer lemon. Sophisticated mineral notes appear as the wine opens. An underlayment of lychee fruit, ripe pineapple and white peach then follows. The rich palate is finely tuned, with an excellent, refreshing balance. If possible, allow some of this vintage to age in your cellar ? patience will bring ample reward.

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.
