Merry Edwards thins fruit at her Meredith vineyard. (HANDOUT / May 10, 2010)

2007 Russian River Valley: Full fruit flavor deepened with woodland notes and a sense of the earth. Evocative nose offered touches of hay, smoke, cedar and spice. Colored a beautiful deep garnet. $42

2006 Meredith Estate: Cherry red with a full nose seasoned with spice, black pepper and earth. Tart berries at first, then an earthy plumminess followed by spice. $54
