Everybody’s favorite domestic SB, I thought I’d fill you in on the ‘17. The 2017 is slightly above average for ME. Best after an hour of bottle air and at approximately cellar temperature or just slightly below. Grassy nose but guava, papaya palate with hints of honeydew, grass, lemongras. Slightly richer than some vintages — and slightly lower acid structure. Perennial qpr, 91.5

Interesting.  The lack of grassiness is what I've always liked best about Merry Edwards SB.

Far less grassy than just about any other domestic SB. The nose had some, enough to know it is SB, but that’s it. This was very much in line with most good vintages of the wine. The biggest difference is it might be a slightly richer wine in 2017.
