Merry Edwards Russian River Pinot Noir 2018
This brilliant, burgundy-hued wine immediately offers up fragrances of mixed berries, Bing cherry, cola, candied violets and black tea along with exotic spices and dried herbs. On the palate, there is a compelling mix of broad tannin's and minerality, along with a seductive measure of smoky oak balanced with juicy acidity. Black plum, brambleberry, cassis and wet slate create a layered and lingering finish. We carefully selected a dish to pair with this wine that is made using one of the most popular preparations in the world, tikka masala. Lamb Tikka Masala, which pairs beautifully with the exotic spices and herbs present in this Pinot. It makes a lovely spring or summer meal with fresh steamed vegetables and jasmine rice.

|The 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley has a nose of cranberry sauce and baked rhubarb with accents of blood orange, tea leaves, earth and potpourri. The medium-bodied palate is bright and spicy, soft and juicy with an amaro-laced finish.|
