2011 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

more

6/30/2015 - cliffkol wrote: 89 points

Aromas of sweet, dense cherries and strawberries. On the palate, forward fruit of sweet cherries, strawberries, spices. Very fragrant, light tannins. Medium body and red color. Very decent but not quite up to the high standards I have for Merry Edwards.

Decanted 7 hours. Sweet, fruity, big aromas. Dark berries, raisins, bramble, honey, cassis flavors. Soft, velvety tannins. This is a leaner and medium body and texture port. Rich, lush and delicious.

2008 Evening Land Vineyards Pinot Noir Red Queen Seven Springs Vineyard

Eola - Amity Hills more

6/28/2015 - cliffkol wrote: 93 points

Classic Burgundy style. Soft, mature fruits. Earthy, slight leather flavors. Soft and velvety tannins, yet mouth filling. Long finish. The fruits are matured -- you do not have the typical Oregon forward fruit or cherry flavors. These are mature dark fruits and delicious.

Floral, earthy, mature fruit aromas. Very typical Bordeaux style yet bolder and fruitier. Firm, pronounced tannins, mouth filling yet softly presented. Mature fruits, earthy. Velvet and silky textures. Smooth. Nice, but short, finish. A wonderful bottle.

This wine is really hitting its stride. Intense flavors, light tannins, but not jammy. A bit of sweetness. Blackberries and other dark berries, fruit compote, some oak and spices. I would prefer a bit more tannins, which keeps this in the low 90's. Doris loves this wine. (D 92)

Decanted over an hour. Delicious, but still a bit tannic, closed. This was our last bottle of 2004 which is a shame since this vintage should continue improving.

Needed time to calm down after opening. Very tannic and bret. After a while it calmed down a bit, but still not totally resolved. Medium body and flavors, and enjoyable. But I expected more from this bottle.

First Wednesday Wine Group (Coral Gables, Fl.): Another over the top fruit bomb from Orin Swift. He definitely knows the recipe for big and bold combined with balanced tannins. A huge crowd pleaser, but not for me. (D loved this wine)

Beautiful. Great nose of mature red fruits, floral and sweet earth. Deep concentrated flavors of dark cherries, blue fruits, earth and cedar. Soft silky tannins complement the flavors well. It doesn't get better than this.
