Wine EnthusiastMerry Edwards, known best for her Pinot Noir, says this variety is a comparative joy. She bolsters the wine with Sauvignon Musqué and oak aging to build a richly creamy and full expression, marked by moderate acidity. Lemon meringue, peach and vanilla flavors add to its viscosity and sultry power.
