"In terms of density, Merry Edwards 2016 Pinot Noir from the Flax Vineyard falls in between that of the one from the Sonoma Coast and the Klopp Ranch. It delivers a wonderfully complex combination of red fruit flavors, spice and herbs. The structure -- tannins and acid -- are there, but not intrusive. Indeed, the acidity imparts liveliness. Like all of her wines, its grandeur becomes even more apparent in the finish. Expressive now, especially after an hour in the glass, I suspect it will be more dazzling in another year or two."
"An elegant pinot that’s extremely well crafted; it has great complexity and depth. Notes of cherry, black raspberry, brioche and cracked black pepper. It has firm tannins, yet manages to have a supple texture. Bravo."
