Merry Edwards

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.

Wine Enthusiast

Merry Edwards doesn't just slap this regional blend together. This is a combination of her best vineyards. It's a wonderful wine, dry, balanced and deep in berry, spice, cola and earthy flavors. In many ways, it's the consummate Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Drink now-2015.

Score: 93. —Steve Heimoff, May 01, 2012.

Wine Spectator

This firm wine features tangy acidity but also ripeness that leads to berry pie. Full-bodied, elegant and balanced, very tight and vibrant, this is slow to unfold, but gains as it does. Drink now through 2019. 3,988 cases made.

Score: 91. —James Laube, October 15, 2011.
