    October 27, 2014 - medium body and finish, subtle fruit front, good acid

    October 25, 2014 - Silky elegant tannins supporting notes of dried tea leaves, dark cherry fruit, and orange pith. It had a few more years of life, but it was spectacular.

    August 17, 2014 - This has developed beautifully. Fruit is more balanced now. It has beautiful aromas and amazing Pinot subtlety. I love. It will get better and better for anyone that likes a bit of age.

    August 4, 2014 - This is my first time with Merry. They say you never forget your first, and I certainly won't forget her.

    I'd heard nice things about Merry, of course. Said to be one of the belles in the Russian River Valley. And that she was. But she was more cultured than I expected....more like a sophisticated French woman than a young, pretty American. Somewhat complex to readily understand, but easy to like.

    Is that because, brace yourself, she had a little age on her? I think it was! Her tan lines...er tannins...were still there, but not so evident. She wasn't wearing too much perfume, as young girls are wont to do. And her body, well, was still quite voluptuous! I wondered if she'd had a make-over...she looked and tasted more like a syrah than a pinot. Whatever magic she did, it was very appealing to me.

    As Jan & Dean sang about their '34 Woody, "it's not very cherry." No, this Merry wasn't very cherry. But that's exactly the kind of wine I like.
