Merry Edwards Pinot Noir Klopp Ranch 2013
|Robert M. Parker, Jr.||92+||Drink: 2016 - 2036|
|The 2013 Pinot Noir Klopp Ranch is from Goldridge soils, which are favored by many Chardonnay and Pinot winemakers in the Russian River. Typical of her wines, there is terrific color, extraction and a deep ruby/purple color. The wine is broad, flavorful, intense, promising and delicious. Sweet plum, cranberry and black cherry notes moving toward bluer fruits are present in this full-bodied Pinot Noir that shows good acidity and ripe tannin. This is another winner, but it is most promising and brightest days are ahead of it. Forget it for several years and drink it over the following 15-20.
This is an exceptional lineup of Pinot Noir from one of the masters and pioneers in California
