Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc Russian River 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine “struts its stuff” in a sophisticated and stylish fashion. The aroma is floral and mouthwatering, layered with ripe melon, peach and subtle mineral highlights. In the mouth, it is rich and seamlessly well balanced, kicking in a hint of grapefruit, citrus and pear on the lingering finish. Wine Makers Notes "Smooth and silky, with spicy details of nutmeg and quince joined by pure, ripe honeydew melon and cantaloupe flavors. Pear, lemon zest and apricot notes are elegant, lithe, and wonderfully juicy on the finish...92" WS 05/12 "Aromas of melon, grapefruit and flowers, complicated by minerals and toast. Supple and lightly saline, with an umami richness of texture to the ripe flavors of peach, pear and flowers. Mellow acidity accentuates the wine's leesy opulence. Finishes with good persistence..."
