The Character

Overall Brilliant, burgundy-hued wine
Aromas Black plum, brambleberry, cassis and wet slate create a layered and lingering finish.
Mouthfeel Broad tannins and minerality
Tasting Notes "Moving into some black fruits with the 2020 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley, it offers notes of dark fresh earth, toast, and cinnamon stick. The texture is full, with fairly gripping structure, and the palate is rich with black cherry, tea leaf, and forested earth." --Jeb Dunnuck

Awards 2020 - 93pts Jeb Dunnuck

The Story

Merry Edwards approaches life with graceful intensity. Now in the fifth decade of her winemaking career, Merry has earned the universal respect of winemaking peers, grape growers and academicians. At home in the Russian River Valley since 1977, Merry Edwards has explored its hills, pockets, slopes and hollows, discovering small sites where choosing the right rootstock, clone and farming techniques can produce exceptional grapes. This led her in 1996 to purchase land in the Sebastopol Hills region of Russian River Valley. Merry often refers to this appellation blend as the core Pinot Noir in our portfolio. An assemblage of half a dozen different Pinot Noir vineyards within the Russian River Valley area, the wine showcases the art of blending. With this diversity, the Pinot created is a wonderful, kaleidoscopic reflection of the Russian River Valley.
