2012 Merryvale Pinot Noir Stanly Ranch Estate Carneros
100% Pinot Noir
Dark red cherry in color, with aromas of ripe red and black cherry, wild strawberry, cranberry, cola, licorice and baking spice. The entry is soft and sweet, leading to a round, fleshy, generously textured mid-palate with nice, natural acidity and a lengthy finish framed by fine-grained oak tannins.
