Merry Edwards Winery

Merry Edwards Winery was founded in 1997 and produces terroir-driven, single-vineyard Pinot Noirs, including the winery flagship Meredith Estate, from 80 acres of estate vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Over two decades, as Merry assembled this stellar collection of vineyards, she employed meticulous attention to detail to become known for crafting Pinot Noirs of immense depth, elegant structure and exceptional longevity.

The winery also makes three appellation wines. The Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs showcase the art of blending. These core wines highlight the best qualities of each AVA and are made to be approachable from release. The winery’s fragrant, barrel-aged Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc is among the most sought after made in California. A single-vineyard Chardonnay from the venerable Olivet Lane Vineyard and Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc round out the portfolio.

Now a Certified California Sustainable Winery, the brand entered a new chapter after Merry’s retirement in 2020. Merry’s handpicked successor, Winemaker Heidi von der Mehden, and Winery President Nicole Carter have taken up exactly where Merry left off and will continue to make wines treasured by legions of Merry Edwards’ fans well into the future.

Winemaker's Notes

"Reflecting its clonal origin, the aroma is a virtual symphony of cherries — Queen Anne, Rainier and dark Bing. Spicy notes of lightly toasted, burnished oak along with leather, tobacco, rosemary and white pepper add depth. A hint of minerality is in keeping with Flax typicity, reflecting the soil in which it's grown.

The wine has a soft entry that develops into a smooth yet firm palate that increases in intensity toward the finish. Tannins are fine grained, and the balanced acidity creates a mouthwatering sensation. Anise, dark fruit, chocolate and cassis form accents. In the glass, we can see this Pinot virtually unfold, promising a brilliant future."

Wine Enthusiast, 94 pts

"From a Middle Reach site along Westside Road, this robust, earthy wine is strong in firm tannin and overall structure. Earthy and bright in underlying acidity, it dazzles in dark, rich flavors of strawberry, blueberry and dried herb, a whiff of white pepper lurking. A finishing touch of dark chocolate leaves one wanting more."
