Angel's Flight

Meredith Estate Vintages 2009 through 2013
Exclusively Featuring 2011 Angel Wing Pinot Noir
 
2011 Angel Wing Pinot Noir*
96 Points
“A monumental Pinot Noir, in the best sense of the word. One whiff predicts its grandeur. What follows is a glorious explosion of flavors — smoky, fruity, earthy — that flow seamlessly one into another. A hefty wine, its silky, velvety texture reinforces its overall gracefulness. It’s a worthy tribute.”
    Michael Apstein, Wine Review Online, March 2015

2009 Meredith Estate Pinot Noir
96 Points
“Here’s a Pinot to put into your cellar. That’s if you can keep from opening it now and savoring the deep, spicy flavors that are so captivating. Offers up layers of cherries, cola, pomegranates, mushrooms, Indian spices and minerals, not to mention a deft touch of sweet, smoky oak. Won¬derful tannins and brisk acidity provide balancing struc¬ture.”
Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast, May 2012

2010 Meredith Estate Pinot Noir
92 Points
“Dark-hued, rich and tannic, showing good density and concentration, with power and torque. This offers lots of dark berry, mocha, espresso and subtle vanilla bean notes. Needs cellar time or aeration. Best from 2014 through 2022.”
James Laube, Wine Spectator, September 2013

2011 Meredith Estate Pinot Noir
94 points / Cellar Selection
“Only great wineries can succeed in a brutally challenging vintage like 2011, and Merry Edwards did. This wine is not completely approachable now, being all dryness, tannins and acidity. Notes of wild mushrooms, brown rice, red licorice, cola, clove and white pepper frame the essential core of sour cherry candy. Drink 2019 and beyond.”
Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast, June 2014

2012 Meredith Estate Pinot Noir
97 points
“The Meredith Estate is typically Merry’s star vineyard, but that’s splitting hairs because her grape sourcing is impeccable. There’s a reason, though, that Meredith is the star and it’s embodied in this superb vintage. With seductive floral aromatics and intense, complex fruit aromas, the 2012 Merry Edwards Meredith is a stunning example of the complexity produced by the Meredith vines. Then there is the structure, with its brilliant and rare combination of power and intensity without weight. This is a seamless Pinot that exhibits remarkable elegance and depth.”
Robert Whitley, Wine Review Online, February 2015

2013 Meredith Estate Pinot Noir
93 points
“The 2013 Meredith Estate has a saturated ruby/purple color, beautiful black raspberry and blueberry-like fruit, underlying loamy soil tones, medium to full body, beautiful ripeness purity and depth. Like its siblings it is young, and somewhat unformed but bursting with potential. Forget it for a year or so and drink it over the following 15+ years.”
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, March 2016

*Angel Wing is a special bottling dedicated to Merry’s late son, Warren, and made from lots hand-selected from Meredith Estate.
