Very unique pinot. Like others have said a smokey campfire essence to it. Cool to see someone branching out from the traditional CA style pinot.

Perfect example of a Sonoma Zin. Smooth round tannins, integrated with a medium-long finish. No heat. Dark fruit, inky appearance. Very little pepper or spice in this one. One of the best Zins I have had in a while.

Decent quality for the money. Smooth easy drinking cab. Short finish and one dimensional. Got as a gift, probably wouldn't buy it again but we did drink it all.

Big RRV Pinot with lots of complexity and a medium-long finish. Not as thick as a Bella glos/meomi. A nice balance of smooth tannins, mouth feel, and alcohol. True to RRV style with more fruit than tobacco/leather/forest floor. Would drink again.

2010 Flowers Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

First vintage from their new wine maker. Not a bad effort. Always thought Flowers was overpriced for the quality. Still needs improvement but moving towards a better QPR. Lighter in style compared to their past vintages.

- Brick color and aromas of cedar - Drink this delicious wine now (2014). Tannins are smoothe. Very dark color. Traditional trait of old wines in constantly evolving taste - complex and long finish. Would definitely drink again.

2010 De Loach Pinot Noir Maboroshi Vineyard

Russian River Valley more

This is exactly the type of pinot I have been searching for! An earthy style pinot. Notes of tobacco, leather, forest floor, dark cheeries. Long finish with lots of complexity. Smooth tanins. A great example of what the grapes from the Petaluma Gap can produce. I prefer this to many of our Williams Selyem wines. It doesn't have the boldness of many of the RRV pinots, so I would not age this past 5 - 7 years.

Needs more time to develop. Oak was noticeable and the balance of the flavors was not there yet like in other WS pinots. Will try another bottle in 6 months to a year.

- Yellow gold color and aromas of melon, pineapple, apricot and peach and has flavours of apricot, peach and butterscotch - Very complex bouquet and taste. The finish is long and juicy with lots of layered fruit favors. Good balance of sweet and acid. One of the best white wines I have had in a long time.

Good quality Pinot but past its prime. Not as good as the 2005. Still very enjoyable, but don't hold any longer.

Very basic viognier. Probably better to be drank during warmer months or paired perfectly with the right dish to bring out more character from the wine.

One of the best Chardonnays I have ever had. Great bouquet. Palate opens with as a nice restrained buttery fresh chard and has a long finish that ends with a crisp mineral taste to clear any trace of oak/butter out. Not a Chardonnay fan but I would drink this any time.

2010 Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

7/22/2013 - wineo11 wrote: 90 points

Tastes at vineyard in 12/12 and the wine was very tannic and unbalanced. We bought a few bottles to see how it would develop overtime. In just 7 months it has come a long way and is coming together very nicely. Decanted for 30 minutes and drank over a few hours. Tannins are starting to die down and the layers of flavor are starting to come together. Like others have mentioned it is a traditional Sonoma Pinot with a prominent dark cherry and red fruit palate with a medium to long finish. Still drinking young so give it some more time, but developing nicely.
