Posana Featured Wine
Merry Edwards Russian River Valley | Sauvignon Blanc 2022
BY THE BOTTLE / 85
We are celebrating the beginning of Summer with this sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc from Merry Edwards Wine and Vineyard, as our June wine feature.
With notes of apple, citrus, tropical fruits and accents of summer grass and vanilla, this wine has a sophisticated palate that is both refreshing and sensual.
We suggest pairing this with our Tempura Cabbage, Market Fish or Kale Salad. Grab a bottle of this wine and sip away while taking in the brilliant Summer weather on our outdoor patio.
Merry Edwards was one of California’s first woman winemakers and founded Merry Edwards Winery and Vineyards in 1997. The winery also makes three appellation wines and is now a Certified California Sustainable Winery as of 2020. Merry hand selected Winemaker Heidi von der Mehden, and Winery President Nicole Carter as her successors upon her retirement.
