2017 Merry Edwards Georgeanne Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 540 cases, $63. Estate grown. An estate vineyard located on Westside Road near the northern border of the AVA planted to Mt Eden clone. · Dark garnet color in the glass. Very shy aromas of blackberry jam. Hard to coax much out of the nose. Monster fruit and hard tannins greet the palate. Flavors of blackest cherry and black raspberry are backed by trim oak. The wine combines some fruit intensity and length with tannic muscle on the finish. Score: 88. Reviewed July 20, 2019
