MERRYVALE Pinot Noir, Carneros 2013

The 2013 Merryvale 'Carneros' Pinot Noir is another fantastic new release wine from this estate. This bottling utilizes Dijon clones 114, 115, 667, 777, and 828, along with Pommard & Swan included as well. The Pinot Noir was sourced from the Stanly Ranch Estate, Brown Ranch, and RMS vineyards and saw 30% new French oak for 12 months prior to bottling. The wine starts with aromatics of spicebox, leather, red currant and red cherry. There are lively flavors of red cherry, red currant, cranberry, spicebox and suggestions of guava puree and orange rind. This shows good balance and persistence, with a long finish. For those who enjoy the fruity, yet elegant style. (Best 2016-2025) - May, 2016 (OB)
