Merry Edwards 2003 Klopp Ranch Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: Exhibits the dark color and rich texture of a cabernet, yet its lively acids and wonderful rose-petal aromas remind one that this is pinot at its purest. Worth knowing: Merry Edwards is a maverick, having persevered in her goal of becoming a winemaker at a time when the profession boasted few women. Today, many of the industry’s most celebrated winemakers are women—and Edwards is, happily, one of them. Her Sonoma pinot noirs are finely crafted expressions of place that combine the structural grace of great burgundies with a distinctly Californian ripeness.
