Merriam Vineyards Pinot Noir Cuvee 2013
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateMerriam Vineyards has three cuvées of Pinot Noir. The 2013 Pinot Noir Cuvée, from multiple clones including 23, 115, 667 and 777, shows nice raspberry as well as a touch of cola and black cherries in a medium to full-bodied, stylish Côte de Nuits-like style. This is another impressive Pinot Noir from this producer. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a thick, syrupy-rich wine that traffics in candied cherry and oak flavors.It has appeal but lacks varietal character.
