Stocky robustness in a bottle. Medium tannins, big on cherries, licorice, even rosemary-ish. Would be fun to try again in a decade though. — a month ago

Merry Edwards Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2018: Medium-bodied. Medium acidity. Extremely balanced with deep fruit flavors of black cherry, raspberry, cranberry & blackberry. Let’s not forget the hint of smoke & spice and that so unforgettable silky smooth finish. For me, Merry Edwards always delivers near perfect Pinots from Sonoma! Have a great day!

A Merry Edwards tasting of wines from the Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, to the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, to a single vineyard Bucher Pinot Noir, finishing with a rich, tropical Sauvignon Blanc. 🙌🙌
All wines are barrel fermented, with a mix of new and aged (neutral) French Oak, depending on the site and grape 🍇 expression. I loved learning more about Meredith Edwards (Merry, the happy winemaker), her background, education (which includes time in France studying clones), and her groundbreaking work birthing the UCD 37 clone, used in many of her Pinot Noirs.
Merry has retired from her role of owner and winemaker at Merry Edwards @merryedwardswinery , having sold it to Roederer about a year ago, but these wines from 2018 still had Merry’s touch and we’re excited to taste the 2019 vintage and beyond from current winemaker Heidi von der Mehden. — 2 months ago
