2007 Merry Edwards "Tobias Glen" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1107831 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Drinkable now, but has the structure for the cellar. Grown in a Forestville vineyard from modern Dijon clones, it’s very fruity, offering clean, pure flavors of cherries, raspberries, blueberries and spices. The cool climate contributes fresh, zesty acidity, but the tannins are considerable. Inner quote mark (6/2010)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This comes from a six-acre vineyard in Forestville, Merry Edwards's coolest source for Pinot Noir. Planted to three Dijon clones, it is consistently the last fruit Edwards harvests. The coolness shows in the fresh lift of acidity, adding tension and firm minerality to the tannin. The fruit is dark and impenetrable until air opens the tannins and light begins to show through, transparent, warm and inviting. Scents of tart blueberries, violets and wildflower honey develop over time. Built to cellar, or to decant for roast squab stuffed with cranberries and wild mushrooms. Inner quote mark (8/2010)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Tighter and less forthcoming than any of the other Merry Edwards releases, this one does share its mates' focus on ripe red cherries, albeit here with hints of tomato and dried wildflowers competing for background positions. Firm on the palate and a touch tangy at the end, this wine earns points for its depth and richness. *One Star* Inner quote mark (6/2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium red, a bit less saturated than the Meredith Estate bottling. Strawberry, plum, redcurrant and herbs on the nose. Suave and silky on entry, then rather easygoing in the mid-palate, with strawberry fruit lifted by herbs and spices. Finishes with a broad dusting of ripe tannins and good length. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2010)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Serves up a subtle mix of black cherry, plum, wild berry, anise and mineral notes that are delicate, floral and spicy. Ends with a cleansing finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2010)
