The true blending of Merriam Vineyards wines begins with the grapes, where distinct varietals are carefully selected and planted to capture the best of Sonoma County’s diverse terroir. Our two vineyard sites, each with their own unique soil composition and geography, allow us to plant particular vines on land that best allows them the opportunity to produce exceptional fruit. Merriam Vineyards are committed to vineyard designated wines and thus/subsequently produce roughly eighty five percent of our own estate fruit on site. Those additional grapes, while farmed elsewhere in the county, come from accomplished local growers who share the same vision and commitment to honoring the relationship between vine and terroir.
2016 Pinot Noir Estate - Handcrafted from a single vineyard with aromas of a bouquet of flowers, baking spices and black cherry. A soft and silky texture on the palate, it tastes like fresh berry jam on warm toast with a long finish of chocolate pie covered with whipped cream. more
