Winery Notes:

Founded in 1973, the Edmeades Vineyard is one of Anderson Valley's most historic sites. The vineyard blocks selected for this Pinot Noir come from the oldest vines and steepest slopes on the property. Fresh red cherry, raspberry and pomegranate beam from the glass followed by nuances of black tea, dried mushroom and crushed stone minerality.

Aromas: Raspberry, dried cherries, pennyroyal, orange zest.

Palate: Medium weight palate with soft tannins. Notes of cherry, pomegranate, and clove with light delicate cola notes on the finish.

The first vintage for this cuvée from Ryan, the 2017 Pinot Noir Edmeades Vineyard comes from mid-valley and was brought up in 27% new French oak. It's a beautiful wine with blueberry and wild strawberry fruits as well as complex spice, dried flowers, and some loamy soil notes. Medium-bodied, seamless, and silky on the palate, it's a lovely, layered wine that shines for its texture and balanced.

This is the inaugural release of this vineyard—Copain hasn't worked with this fruit before. Pale to medium ruby, the 2017 Pinot Noir Edmeades Vineyard, aged 16 months in 30% new French oak, opens with very pretty scents of loamy earth, rose petals, cola and strawberry jam layered with notions of orange peel, wild blackberries, crushed cherries and cold earth plus a nutmeg hint. It's medium-bodied, fleshing out in intensity before zeroing back in with juicy acidity. It has a soft frame of tannins and finishes very long. This is delicious! 1,000 cases produced.

This flavorful and well-balanced wine offers generous strawberry and cherry flavors, a broad mouthfeel and just a touch of tannin for texture. It's full bodied, moderately spicy and quite expressive overall. Best through 2027.

Juicy, with lithe minerality and acidity framing the focused red currant, raspberry and cherry tart flavors. Slate and spice notes show on the racy finish. Drink now through 2024. 982 cases made.
