About

97

"Merry Edwards' sauvignon blanc is consistently among the top two or three produced in the United States. What sets it apart is its remarkable complexity, structure and harmony. On the first sip you may be reminded of ripe tropical fruits. On the second, citrus notes emerge. Then there is the note of white peach that is a signature characteristic of the finest Bordeaux blanc. On another sip you might find the tangerine and Meyer lemon note that signals Sancerre. Texturally, the wine exhibits a rich, oily mouthfeel, but with firm acidity and telltale traces of minerality. In a word, this vintage of Merry Edwards sauvignon blanc is positively brilliant and delicious."

93 Wine Spectator

"Supple and elegant up front, revealing layers of dried mango, honeysuckle, ripe melon and vivid peach flavors, all set on a creamy body, with plenty of pop from acidity. Finishes on an orange Creamsicle note. Drink now."

No. 1 on Lettie Teague's Top 10 list: "Merry Edwards, famous for her Pinot Noirs, also makes a lush barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc. She began barrel fermenting this varietal back in the 1970s—to make it “more interesting.” She succeeded." --Lettie Teague, Wall Street Journal
