(From 2009 Vintage) The aroma is deeply layered, opening with the distinctive white pepper signature of the 2009 vintage. This quickly expands into a perfume rich with blueberries, wild roses, plums, blackberries, lavender and violets. Accents of exotic Indian spice, sweet pipe tobacco and vanilla bean heighten the experience. On the palate, its fine bones support layers of full, generous tannin and acidity. This Pinot, though tightly wound, is poised, just waiting for time to release its full potential.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesLet Ms. Edwards' Olivet Lane bottling age quietly and enjoy this one in the nearer term. Its fruit is almost as deep as its mate but does not promise quite so much growth with age. Yet, because it is wonderfully vital and well-balanced, it too will reward those who can resist its early charms. Enjoy it now with steaks or with marinated lamb or let it rest a while to integrate the latter palate acidity that chops off its finish.
