Merry Edwards Olivet Lane Pinot Noir 2015

SKU 42761


In this aroma, one can luxuriate in a fragrance of baked cherry pie, crushed violets, Bing cherry jam, ripe black plums and Queen Anne cherry compote. The senses are equally flooded with scents of dried rose petals, currants and cherry eau de vie. Hints of caramelized brown sugar, toasty oak, new leather and clean mulch add complex, savory accents. On the palate, the tannins are rich and silky while the classic acid balance needed for long-term aging is very present. The sustained, sleek finish reveals blood orange, anise and black tea. Please try this easy, satisfying recipe I call Sublime Porchetta with this vintage of our Olivet Lane. Once you do, it will become a favorite. Wrapped securely in bacon, the pork tenderloin remains juicy and succulent, not really needing any sauce. Add baby vegetables to the baking dish, like potatoes, beets and carrots. Serve alongside the porchetta, and you have a complete and wonderfully tasty meal.

Wine AdvocateMedium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Olivet Lane offers up intense red currants and warm red cherries notions with suggestions of baking spices, lavender, bay leaves and tilled soil. Medium-bodied, it has a lovely, plush frame and plenty of juicy red and black fruits, finishing long and perfumed.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a soft, velvety and lush wine, with bold, beautiful highlights of cranberry, orange and dark cherry. Medium in weight, it dances along a tightrope of fresh, focused acidity and savory black tea. The vineyard is planted with older vines that won't last forever, and the winemaker treats each vintage as if it might be its last.
