Merry Edwards Olivet Lane Pinot Noir 2013


SKU 42761


The intensely floral aroma features scents of cherry blossoms and fragrant roses. Ripe boysenberries, dark cherries, ripe raspberries and red plums are vibrantly present. A touch of nutmeg, soft caramel and vanilla hint at the barrel aging of this wine in 81 percent new French oak. This fine sweet oak also supports the palate, creating a rich and highly textural experience. Recent vertical tastings of vintages going back to 1999 have revealed the wine's extraordinary capability for aging.

Wine EnthusiastBaked bread and lavender jump out on the nose of this perennially delicious wine, which in this vintage shines in red fruit with a crisp citrus undertone. Elegant and graceful, it offers moderate tannins that will withstand aging, finishing in spicy nutmeg and wild vanilla. Drink now through 2023.

Wine SpectatorTight and slow to unfold, this reveals ripe blueberry and wild berry, graphite, cedar and crushed rock notes, ending with a dusty, gravelly edge. Drink now. 700 cases made.
