2019 Merry Edwards Winery Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, USA (750 ml)
The lifted, aromatic nose is filled with bright red raspberry, red currant, exotic notes of sandalwood and a hint of vanilla, along with touches of forest floor, earthy evergreen and cocoa. Its mouth-coating entry is round and generous, offering up layers of juicy red cherries and refreshing acidity. While bright and engaging now, an underlying core of lushness shows it possesses the elements to develop over time.
A perfect match with the Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is an over-the-top charcuterie board. Artisan cured meats, your favorite local cheeses and freshly baked baguettes, olives, nuts, dried fruits, pickled vegetables, roasted garlic.
Creamy red fruit and light stemmy spice adorn this soft, silky wine from coastal sites. It shows an opulent mouthfeel and teases of rose and forest floor. Cranberry, pomegranate and rhubarb come to mind on the palate, as full-bodied tannins and oak contrast it all.

The 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast, medium ruby in color, has a nose of red and black cherries, with touches of dusty earth, charcuterie and tar. Medium-bodied, the palate is silky and full of luscious, spice-laced red berry fruits, finishing long with a touch of floral perfume.

The 2019 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is fresh with aromas of raspberry candy, wet stone, and cinnamon spice. The palate is forward and intense, with notes of iron-rich earth, a silky texture, fine-grained tannins, and rounded cherry fruit.

Opens with an intensely fruity aroma, with concentrated cherry, plum and red currant flavors that are filled with rich acidity. Underbrush accents midpalate lead to ripe spiciness on the finish.
