The vineyard is in the coolest part of the valley, the southerly part Merry Edwards calls the Golden Triangle. The wine is dry, tannic, bright in acidity and insanely rich.

This firm, ripe Pinot features blackberry, black licorice, mineral, berry jam and floral scents, leading to a full body. Well-structured, ending with tight, minerally edge. Drink now through 2018. 730 cases made.
