The Herbfarm USD 110.00 750ml

Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Olivet Lane 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

I styled this wine to be rich and full bodied using a process favored by Burgundian winemakers- Methode a l' Ancienne. The technique, which involves cold soaking in small, open­top vessels and whole-cluster fermentation, releases the full­est expression of the fruit. Several times a day, during fermen­tation, I submerged the cap by hand to enhance extraction. I aged the Olivet Lane for ten months in eighty-four percent new French oak, selecting Francois Freres barrels as the per­fect match for the wine's deep flavors. This is a stylish Pinot Noir with classic dark Bing cherry aroma and flavor. Elegant yet rich, it has seamless balance and sumptuous texture with a layered, lengthy finish. The innate complexity of the Olivet Lane fruit gives this wine an unmis­takable capacity for aging.
