2012 Georganne Pinot Noir

Winemaker's Comments

This young vineyard continues to enchant us with lovely wines each harvest, even at its tender age of six years. Georganne represents the clear-cut, positive effects our evolved farming techniques have on raising vines in order to produce stunning wines. It has been a rewarding experience to watch this development and see how quickly our customers have fallen in love with her wines.
 
The aroma opens with scents of freshly baked blueberry pie, boysenberries, raspberries, black currants and dark cassis. Rich vanilla, cocoa powder, allspice and cinnamon add luscious accents to this mouthwatering Pinot. An elusive floral note -- perhaps lupine or hibiscus -- enthralls us even further.
 
A gentle entry to the palate evolves into increased richness in the midpalate. This expansion culminates in a smooth, sumptuous finish. Georganne definitely will gain even more breadth, depth and complexity as it spends time in your cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"Best of Show"

"Big, deep, rich, authoritative, black fruit and nutmeg flavors." Quarterly Review of Wines, "32nd Annual Best of the Best," December 2014

90 points

"While all the Merry Edwards 2012 are quite opulent, the 2012 Pinot Noir Georganne is one of the more restrained wines in the range, as the expression of fruit and overall structure are a bit more persistent than in some of the other wines. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, rose petal and spice are woven together in a relatively delicate, feminine Pinot that nevertheless offers plenty of Russian River generosity." Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, May 2015
