Merry Edwards Meredith Estate Pinot Noir 2015

SKU 47486


This beautiful vineyard is a star in our portfolio, taking its place as the "oldest child" in our family of estate vineyards here in Russian River Valley. Now 18 years old, she has reached maturity and can be looked up to by our younger plantings. Meredith presents a fine example of our dedicated and careful farming - her grapes make richer and more substantial wines each harvest. This garnet-hued beauty dazzles us from the outset with generous brambleberry fruit, blackberry liqueur, ripe blue plums, blueberries, cherries and black currants. This opening salvo is followed by savory charcuterie and chanterelles, caramel, cocoa, anise, fennel and white pepper. White roses, wild strawberries, raspberries, framboise liqueur, cinnamon and vanilla drift over like an echo onto the palate. Its big entry displays ripe tannins, while the body is lush, bold and powerful. This Pinot is juicy and approachable, yet lengthens and broadens, building intensity through the dynamic, extended finish. As with previous vintages, this wine benefits and rewards the patient collector as it unfolds over time.

Wine EnthusiastSoft, velvety, lush and broad, this is a full-figured, darkly brooding wine, steeped in concentrated flavors of strawberry and blackberry. Baked bread, milk chocolate and rose petals accent it well, with supportive, measured oak adding a touch of toast.
