2009 Pinot Noir, Carneros

Wonderfully fragrant and sporting a lovely mix of ripe cherries, minerals and sympathetic oak spice in the nose, this very well-crafted offering is firm and fruity and very well-balanced with a nice sense of polish already apparent. More stylish than sturdy, and long on the palate,it is bound to show further layering and nuance if its early charms can be ignored, but waiting might be a task that does not come easy.

2009 Pinot Noir, Carneros

Medium ruby color; ripe, bright red cherry flavors with clove and cinnamon notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Forward, delicious Pinot that’s drinking really well now.

"At Merryvale, it's more than wine and cheese"

2009 Pinot Noir, Carneros

"An incredible wine for the price, this pinot noir has lots of red and black cherry and earthy aromas, with beautiful dark fruit, rich vanilla and cinnamon flavors.

"Merryvale’s sommelier pairs this with an earthy cheese like Challerhocker."
