This wine is exuberantly layered in bright tones of pomegranate and strawberry, while textured with integrated tannins and oak. Complementary elements of forest floor, black tea and clove play well with the fruitiness and enduring lushness on the palate. VIRGINIE BOONE
The 2018 Pinot Noir Meredith Estate is the most complete of the wines in this range. It offers a compelling interplay of aromatics, fruit and structure. All the elements come together so nicely in this ample, vibrant Russian River Pinot. Black cherry, cola, menthol, licorice and lavender build into the substantial finish.
The nose of this opaque purple wine starts with inviting notes of vanilla cream, fresh blackberries, baking spices and plums. Elegant and refined on the palate, this Estate bottling has a purity of fruit and silky, well-integrated tannins. Brooding black fruit notes and bittersweet chocolate intertwine with a core of well-balanced acidity. The finish is long, bright and mouthwatering— an effortless marriage of intensity and grace.
