Every year since the first vintage of Merry Edwards wines was released in 1997, we have produced our core wine, the Russian River Valley appellation blend, which captures the very essence of our valley. This wine allows us to paint a portrait of the appellation. Like brushstrokes on a canvas, this wine was artfully assembled using grapes from several vineyards. The result is a mouthwatering wine that reflects the complexity and depth of our home AVA and shows why the Russian River Valley is the premier spot to grow Pinot Noir.
On the nose, aromas of red cherries, ripe raspberries, brambleberries and blueberries mingle with violets.
Toasted brioche and sweet tea tease you to take a sip. Offering immediate palate appeal, the wine displays a beautiful balance of bright acidity and well-integrated tannins supported by a touch of warm French oak.
Velvety and ripe with a lingering finish, all indications point to a long life ahead.
Winery President Nicole Carter’s Whole Roasted Chicken is comfort food that pairs perfectly with our
Russian River Pinot Noir. A crispy skin coated in fresh herbs and a scattering of spring vegetables bring out
the best in this lush yet bright wine. Find this recipe at merryedwards.com.
