Merry Edwards 2011 Flax Vineyard Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

Cellar Selection

Dry and tough in tannins, this is a great wine that needs aging. The vineyard is in the warmer Westside Road part of the valley, but the chilly vintage nonetheless dominates, giving the wine hard tannins that accentuate its dryness and acidity. Waiting until at least 2022 should allow the sweet plum, cherry and mulberry fruit flavors to emerge. It could still be rocking and rolling in 2029.
