Merry Edwards Georganne Pinot Noir 2013

SKU 47888


With the current vintage, Georganne shows off a rather saucy demeanor. The dark ruby color is the first indication of the depth of fruit extraction. As an opening salvo, the dense aroma is packed with mouthwatering sweet cassis, wild blackberry pie and chocolate-dipped black cherries with a glimmer of rose and lilac. Savory notes of umami, fresh earth and toasted almond add to this rich core. The palate is broad and dynamic, setting the stage for long-term aging with its generous tannins, soft oak richness and lifted finish.

Wine EnthusiastRustic earth and the aromatic sparks of a rose garden open this wine, named by combining the middle names of the producer and her husband. Tight, youthful tannins hover around chocolate, strawberry and blackberry notes, resulting in a velvety texture on the expansive palate. It finishes quietly and confidently, eager to develop further in bottle; enjoy through 2023.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Pinot Noir Georganne Vineyard comes from a vineyard on Westside Road and is planted with Merry Edward's favorite clone of Pinot Noir, UCD 37. Slightly more earthy and large-boned than her other cuvées, the wine is tannic, firm and Pommard-like in its masculinity muscle. There is a lot going on, with plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, underlying earthiness and spice. Forget this for several years and drink it over the following 15 years. This could be her Pommard Premier Cru from the Russian River.
