Merry Edwards has Russian River Pinot down, defining it here with the delicate scent and velvet texture of a rose petal. The wine has a natural feel, with a foresty, damp earth savor. A touch of heat in the end will meld with salmon in a red wine reduction.
Among those few bottles that have shown some increase in both range and richness among the 2004s, this wine has achieved a lovely blend of cherry- and vanilla-scented first aromas that are well-fit to its inviting crème brûlée, dried flowers nuances lurking in the background. Only a trifle of a chalky, slightly dry hint at the back of the palate gives away the wine's age, and while it may not grow much from here, so too will it not fall apart any time soon.
