Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Meredith Estate 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

At harvest time, the grapes effuse lush flavors of black plums and succulent, wild blackberries. Using my Méthode à l’Ancienne techniques and aging the wine in seventy-three percent new French oak barrels, I captured the fruit’s innate opulence. Big, beautiful and intense on the palate, with mouthwatering flavors of dark fruits and haunting echoes of violets and roses, this captivating wine expresses a bold character and a long, sublime finish. With all its weight and personality, the wine has sensational aging potential. Here is a perfect partner for longsimmered lamb shanks or roast tenderloin of venison with blackberry sauce. At home I often serve Klopp Ranch Pinot Noir with a plate of aged, artisan cheese and a bit of triple cream or blue as a delicious climax to a wonderful meal.

I had this wine at the Olema Inn on a surfing break from the usual roll through the wine-biz. It started out tight and closed out, but picked up throughout the dinner. A good value in the hot Pinot market.

Tight and compact, yet offers a broader range of flavors, with rich black cherry and blackberry fruit and hints of anise and cedar. Finishes with a long, intricate aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. 1,325 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2004 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Klopp Ranch 750ml
