RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

This white offers a complex mix of lime sherbet, makrut lime leaf, lemon curd and orange blossom flavors that are fragrant and complex on a fleshy, succulent frame, with notes of nectarine and ripe Crenshaw melon. Harmonious, with a fresh thread of acidity on the finish.

93Vinous / IWC

Bright, aromatic and chiseled...bristles with energy... Lemon confit, white flowers, crushed rocks and mint extend the intense, mineral finish beautifully.

92The Wine Advocate

...fresh citrus and green tropical fruits...medium-bodied palate is notable for the intensity of its spicy fruits and bright freshness, and it finishes with an anchoring touch of texture.

PRODUCER

Merry Edwards

Merry Edwards Winery is in the Russian River Valley, in Sonoma County. It was founded in 1997 when long-time California winemaker Merry Edwards started making her own wines on 24 acres in the Russian River Valley. Edwards started her career in 1974 at Mount Eden Vineyards and over the years has worked for Napa Valley producers and has been a consultant for many West Coast producers. Edwards and her husband Ken Coopersmith completed a state-of-the-art winery in 2008. They produce primarily Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Russian River Valley

Russian River Valley AVA is named for the river that meanders from Mendocino County in the north until it finally runs into the Pacific Ocean north of San Francisco. The AVA is cool thanks to its proximity to the northern California coast and the river, and grape growers must learn to deal with regular fog. Nevertheless in recent decades the AVA has become one of the best in the state, meaning that its wines often earn excellent reviews and have considerable cachet. The AVA status was awarded in 1983 and today the appellation has 15,000 vineyard acres. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape though Pinot Noir has also been very successful in recent decades. Russian River Valley Pinot Noir are known for being rich, lush and filled with concentrated fruit and berry flavors. Russian River Pinot Noirs are today considered some of the best domestic Pinot Noirs.

TYPE

White Wine, Sauvignon Blanc

This crisp, dry white wine hails from France but is grown in wine regions around the world. In California, it is sometimes called Fume Blanc; while in Sauternes, it is a component of their famous dessert wines.
