    Intense and concentrated, with ripe, rich layers of plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit, accented by mineral and pebble flavors. On the finish, the tannins are firm, giving it excellent structure.

    92.8 Points?Community Tasting?Cellartracker.com, November 4, 2008/n90 points?“Merry Edwards knows how to make rich, velvety pinot noir.  This one is as fat in the haunches as a Porsche Carrera, and just as sleek…”?Wine & Spirits, April 2007/n“The inherent expression in the Olivet Lane is powerfully feminine, and the … 2004 in particular exhibits intense aromas ”?Brett Anderson'te Robb Report, March 2007/n“Earthy, complex and cellarworthy.”?Linda Murphy?Decanter Magazine, March 2007/n 92 points?“It is full, sweet and highly extracted with lots of solid, black-cherry fruit…”?Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines?February 2007/n90 points?“Fragrant black cherry and wild raspberry scents are fresh and vibrant, with a delicate mouthfeel to the texture.  Well balanced, turning complex on the palate.”?James Laube?Wine Spectator?January 31-February 28, 2007/n/n94 points “A glorious success, for this or any vintage. It shows classic Russian River balance and refinement …” ?Steve Heimoff?The Wine Enthusiast?December 15, 2006/n94 points?“Merry Edwards’ Pinot Noirs are invariably distinctive.  She prizes power and depth and there is no better example of that than her flagship Pinot from the Olivet Lane Vineyard.  This is a massive wine for a Pinot Noir, showing layers of dark fruit, earthy scents of forest floor, and firm tannins that will need a bit of time to resolve and allow this exceptional Pinot to deliver on its vast potential.”?Robert Whitley, winereviewonline.com, November 21, 2006/n/n“Exceptional”?“”Loads of cherry…perfect handling of the oak, and a handsome, sleek texture” ?Dan Berger, Dan Berger’s Vintage Experiences, June 8, 2006
