2018 Merry Edwards
Meredith Pinot Noir
2018 Merry Edwards Meredith Pinot Noir: Merry Edwards has a long legacy of achievements in winemaking within the Russian River Valley. In her 5th decade of winemaking, Merry is one of the leading women in the industry with many accolades to her name. The Meredith Estate is among her proudest achievements and a project that began in 1998 addressing every detail in the vineyard from the ground up. Floral notes of rose petals and purple violets reveal a rich and exotically structured Pinot Noir. There are savory notes of earth and mineraity woven between complex layers of warm, mixed black fruits and ripe tannins. It is laced with a hint of dark cocoa and freshness at the end. The finish is long and youthful, rewarding those that are patient.
2018 Merry Edwards Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc: This late harvest wine is the first from the Maefield Vineyard planted by Merry in 2015. The bright pale yellow color is deceiving as this unctuous wine reveals grandiose aromas of apricot blossom, beeswax and caramelized ginger. On the entry the wine soars from the glass with dried white peach layered with almond paste. As you turn the corner, the wine finishes refreshing with a touch of acidity making it seem like you had an out of body experience.
