Belle Glos Pinot Noir California 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Meiomi, meaning "coast" itn the lanuage of the native Wippo tribe, symbolizes teh origin of this Pinot Noir. Each of the vineyards chosen fo rhte wine are found throughout the diverse sub-climates of the Sonoma Coast. Grapes grown in the cooler, maritine -influenced create wines with delicate cherry notes and slightly higher acidity. From the southern coastal hills, the fruit notes are darker adn earthier. The island valleys make the full-bodies, fruit driven wines with teh sweet tanins adn excellent balance. Meiomi intergates these distinctive characteristics into a layered blend of flavors that enhance and build on each other."Winery review.

Immediate smokey cherries on the nose, new bright fruit ripe and ready for picking, candied red apples and cranberries. Smoke and spice on the palate, very red fruit forward, fuller bodied for a pinot, warm hot sun, ripe CA fruit is noticeable. when eating my shrimp bbq taco, some black pepper notes come through with some black cherries and softens itself, blends well

This pinot fades fast, and is rough across the palate. Tastes, of earth and blackcherry. I paid $9 for 3 oz at a new trendy wine bar.

Terrific; best of a recent tasting I did of seven Somoma Pinots. Smooth, rich, beautiful color, berry forward but not overly sweet. A great buy at $25.

This is a wine that has an alcoholic nose, I'm not going to lie, but there is also some rich notes of chocolate, bacon, and dark berries in the nose so it's not completely overpowered. Long oily legs. Slides across the palate, very light tannic finish. Bold, simple, very drinkable.

Very smooth, well balanced and good structure. Cola, smokey, cherry. Tremendous value at a $20 price point.

Winery notes: At less than six miles from the Pacific Ocean and subject to sometimes ruthless fog and winds the Taylor Lane Vineyard can make growing grapes an act of faith. To achieve full maturity at this coastal site we paired the early-ripening Dijon clones with an adapted traditional Italian trellis system that carries the vine shoots across a nearly horizontal canopy. The trellis acts as a solar panel for maximum ripening and permits dappled sunlight throughout the day and excellent air circulation to the fruit; its height also lets us graze sheep for weed control.

Bright crimson color. Complex brown spices and a slight smokiness are sweetened by ripe dark fruit that enlivens the aroma and palate. The beautifully balanced texture and soft, supple tannins lead on to a soft finish.
