THE REVIEW

Yes, you are reading correctly....Merry Edwards has finally made a Chardonnay. Run don't walk! This is an extremely limited release and a keeper for Chardonnay fans.
    If you follow our emails, you know we feature Merry Edwards' wines from time to time. Known for her award winning Top 100 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, her Chardonnay now rounds out the full range of Sonoma's most sought after varietals.
    We just received our allocation. Naturally, the first thing I did over the weekend was open a bottle. I paired it with crab cake stuffed ravioli in a parmesan alfredo sauce and a sprinkling of sweet peas. Salivating again as I write this, this delicious pairing will be impossible to forget.

    Enjoy on the warmer side of cold, this beauty is delicious now and will continue to shine for the next 7 years. Orders will be filled on a first come, first served basis.Read More »
