2017 Merry Edwards Olivet Lane Vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 730 cases, $68. · Dark garnet color in the glass. Aromas of dark berry jam, wine cave, old book and vanilla. Mid-weight plus flavors of blackberry, cassis, and pomegranate with a touch of iron. A big, bold, ripely-fruited expression of Pinot Noir with supportive tannins. The deep well of fruit has charm, the wine stays in balance, but the wine enters a little stronger than it finishes. Reviewed July 20, 2019. Score: 90. Reviewed August 22, 2021
