Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Olivet Lane 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points and 'Cellar Selection,' Wine Enthusiast: Some will critique this Pinot Noir as being too big and extracted, and lacking delicacy. But Olivet Lane Pinots are seldom delicate. You look for massive fruit and elaborate construction, and that's what you find in this fabulously exotic wine. It's a beauty, rich, dense and opulent, with complex cherry, rose petal, dark chocolate and new oak flavors, wrapped into firm, refined tannins. Just gorgeous now, with a few hours of decanting, but it will easily develop bottle nuances for a good eight years. abv: 13.9%. (Feb 2012)
