Merry Edwards Klopp Ranch Pinot Noir 2013


SKU 38065


The careful farming done at Klopp Ranch has resulted in a string of successful, highly lauded Pinot Noirs. This vintage exhibits great site typicity personifying the core nature of Russian River Valley. The aroma nearly explodes out of the glass with cocoa, hedgerow fruit, rich cassis, white pepper and sarsaparilla. Toasted brioche, caramel and savory prosciutto add more rich flavors. The entry is smooth, building in fine tannins and viscosity through the midpalate to a dynamic, complex, lingering finish. Try Klopp Ranch with dessert! My typical composition might include our own homegrown, dried fruits and a selection of local cheeses.

Wine EnthusiastEdwards has worked with this Laguna Ridge site for decades and her intimate understanding of it shows. Rose petals ride a voluptuous texture and concentrated notes of chocolate, caramel and black cherry; it's as savory as it is buoyant and floral. Still holding on to a wealth of tannin and body, it will cellar well despite being delicious and enjoyable today.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Pinot Noir Klopp Ranch is from Goldridge soils, which are favored by many Chardonnay and Pinot winemakers in the Russian River. Typical of her wines, there is terrific color, extraction and a deep ruby/purple color. The wine is broad, flavorful, intense, promising and delicious. Sweet plum, cranberry and black cherry notes moving toward bluer fruits are present in this full-bodied Pinot Noir that shows good acidity and ripe tannin. This is another winner, but it is most promising and brightest days are ahead of it. Forget it for several years and drink it over the following 15-20.

Wine SpectatorRich, tight and expansive, with a deep core of wild berry, currant and blackberry. At times chewy and rustic, but the flavors persist. Drink now through 2022. 1,320 cases made.
