Always among the deepest of the Edwards Pinots, and often a leader of the vintage, the Windsor Gardens bottling scoops the competition again for its fully fruited, well-stuffed, optimally ripened aromas of cherries tinged with dried violets and crème brulée oak. It is velvety and balanced on the palate with inviting, still nascent flavors leading to a long, slightly youthfully tight finish and a touch of alcoholic heat. Yet, time in bottle is all that is needed to see this exceptional wine grow and get even better yet.
An impressive wine for its compelling interest. It’s fruit-rich, suggesting cherries and pomegranates, with notes of rhubarb, black tea and dried herbs that ride in waves across the palate. Oak contributes nuances but is not strong. Extremely dry, with bright acidity, this wine will develop additional complexities for a few years.
Elegantly styled, with delicate, fleshy cherry, blueberry and raspberry flavors that gain richness and depth, fanning out nicely on the finish.
