    April 27, 2017 - 14.3% abv. The wine is a burgundy color fading at the rim. This has smoky and savory elements along with raspberry and dark cherry notes and some cinnamon hints. It is an expression of Russian River Valley terroir. It is a little hot from alcohol but still pleasurable and not over-the-hill. Very drinkable. I matched it with chicken thighs and another evening with honey-glazed ham. Just when I was thinking about dropping off the Merry Edwards mailing list, I come across a decently-drinking wine that held up for almost a decade. I am looking into my 2008 Pinots but was just reminded that I still have four Merry Edwards Pinots from the 2006 vintage. According to CellarTracker recommendations, all are past their drinking date. I will open one or two this summer and see if they outlived expectations.

    February 13, 2017 - I usually try to drink pinots within 5 years but I am glad that I held on to this one. Fuller bodied than I expected, but fresh red fruit and floral undertones.
