Merry Edwards 2006 Angel Wing Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: This pinot noir is scented with wild roses and heather and offers a deep blackberry reduction spiced with cinnamon and cocoa, followed by an earthy finish of roasted beet. Worth knowing: Merry Edwards has confronted numerous adversities during her long winemaking career. Her first independent venture, Merry Vintners, ended when a cash-strapped creditor called in his loan. Then her tenure as vice president and winemaker at Laurier Winery came to a finale when its parent company filed for bankruptcy. But she persevered, and in 1997 she established Merry Edwards Winery, which has since turned out some of California’s finest pinot noirs.
