The 2016 Pinot Noir Meredith Estate has a deep ruby-purple color and gregarious nose of black cherry liqueur, baked blackberries and blueberry compote with notes of black pepper, soil and spice. Medium to full-bodied with concentrated, dark juicy fruit in the mouth, it has firm, grainy tannins and a layered, spicy finish.

"Merry Edwards’ Meredith Estate Pinot Noir is always one of my favorites in her line-up. Is it a stand out because it’s one of her own vineyards, purchased and planted about 20 years ago? Whatever the reason, the 2016 is particularly magnificent. Big, yet surprisingly not boisterous, it has refinement that is unusual for a wine with this power. Despite its size, it has the quintessential element, at least for me, of Pinot Noir -- a weightlessness. Great vigor and energy keep it balanced and you coming back for more. Each sip reveals more amazement -- how can so much flavor continue to emerge? While I am enthusiastic about all her 2016 Pinot Noirs, there’s an extra dimension to the Meredith Estate.

"Medium purplish ruby; deep, intense, ripe, spicy, black cherry, and red and dark berry fruit aroma with a floral note, and hints of dried herbs, forest floor, and mocha; medium-full body; deep, tight, red and dark fruit flavors; medium to medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. A bit tight and rough in the mouthfeel, the wine will benefit from several more years of bottle aging."
