2006 Merry Edwards "Tobias Glen" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1107825 92 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Keyed in the nose on the pure, cherry-like fruit that exemplifies Russian River Valley Pinot Noir at its best, this wine shows both plenty of depth and an uncommon sense of sophistication right from the very first. Although balanced and even a touch supple to start, it follows its mates insofar as it firms and takes on a slight bit of latter-palate toughness, but its fruit and its impressions of depth do not abate, and age is again very much needed. Inner quote mark (6/2009)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Similar to the excellent 2005, this bottling needs some time in the cellar to let the fruit, tannins, acids and oak knit together. Tasted in early winter of 2009, it’s fresh and dramatic, with ripe flavors of cherries, raspberries, currants, cola, licorice, orange zest and cedar. Inner quote mark (8/2009)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Light red. Smoky red and dark berry aromas are deepened by a rich mocha quality. Fleshy cherry and plum flavors are burly and a touch chunky. A dense, chewy Pinot that finishes with dusty tannins, good grip and an echo of dark berries. This needs rich food. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2009)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tight with a green, stemmy edge to the earth, wild berry and raspberry fruit. Compact and full-bodied, but not revealing much, ending with mineral and pebble notes. (JL) Inner quote mark (5/2009)
