Merry Edwards Meredith Estate Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
This Meredith's opaque purple color is our first sensory clue to its dramatic nature. The expansive fruit profile nearly leaps out of the glass with exotic wild berry, sweet brambleberry pie, boysenberry, raspberry fruit leather and lingonberry. Strong floral notes of roses and violets are joined by scents of oolong tea and spicy, toasted oak. A rich, full entry expands into a deep, bold palate - rich and broad in structure. Thick, mouth-coating tannins combined with mouthwatering acidity give this Pinot playful vitality and energy. The finish is memorable for its powerful elegance. This dish pairs nicely served with rustic wheat noodles and garden fresh broccoli.
Brawny layers of black cherry are structured in broad tannins and a backbone of balanced concentration in this stellar, sturdy and full-bodied wine. Its powerful nature finds worthy companionship in crisp focused acidity that keeps it fresh and accentuates hits of cardamom and cola.
Notes of cedar and spice flank the powerful dark cherry and dried raspberry flavors. Dark chocolate details show on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,375 cases made.
