From the producer's Sebastopol Hills hillside vineyard, this is a perfumy, elegant wine, a combination of lavender and roses with sizable tannins and a backbone of acidity. Dark black fruit and game swirl together with a complex addition of dried herb and violet. This is a lovely wine now, but will benefit from further cellaring through 2023. *Cellar Selection* (VB)
The 2013 Pinot Noir Meredith Estate has a saturated ruby/purple color, beautiful black raspberry and blueberry-like fruit, underlying loamy soil tones, medium to full body, beautiful ripeness purity and depth. Like its siblings it is young, and still somewhat unformed but bursting with upside potential. Forget it for another year or so and drink it over the following 15+ years. (RP)
A full measure of youthfully juicy, cherry-like fruit is the centerpiece of this impressively stuffed Pinot, but the wine is far more than simply fruity and is layered with sweet oak, minerals and dark earthy spice. While a wine of considerable substance and size, it is a well-managed one and shows a careful, very controlled winemaking hand, and, if some will find it a little tannic and tough at this point in its life, it clearly was not made for light-hearted quaffing. Wait for at least three or four years before bringing it out as a partner to savory, full-flavored meat dishes, and, given Ms. Edwards' track record for producing long-lived Pinots, we would not be surprised if it continues to grow for another decade or more. *Two Stars*
