Belle Glos Pinot Noir California Meiomi 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

2010 Tasting Notes: Very dark, almost purple hue. Aromas of sweet cream, berries, sarsaparilla, and oak spices. The first entry encases the mouth with a velvety richness…almost unctuous, but the acidity enlivens the weight and pops the flavors. This wine hits full force with cola, dark berries, earthy notes and smoked meat. An extremely layered wine both in structure and flavor. These layers emerge independently, and then refocus, allowing the supple tannins to carry the wine through to a lingering, succulent finish.

Lots of dark fruit on the nose with chocolaty oak and herbal notes adding some detail. With air the oak really pops here adding sweet, toasted spice notes and a cedary edge. This is very intense stuff with slightly thick, rich dark berry fruit drenched in chocolate and spicy oak. The texture is actually rather restrained in some ways but this is simply explosively fruity. The finish is a bit short and more about oak than that fruit but rather clean and fresh, perhaps showing a touch of heat. Totally not my style of wine but I can see people absolutely loving this. 89pts

Always been a big fan of Meiomi. Glad my brother and his gf got me hooked on it. For a $16/bottle it sure drinks like a $40 bottle.

Smokey bacon nose, with hints of apples and honey in the aroma, and a very rich strawberry fruit and oak flavors on the palate. Good structure with mild acidity - I love these kinds of pinots.

Really bright and acidic fruit on the nose, almost medicinal. Very smooth and lush on entry but packs a powerful punch on the back palette, with a lingering finish.

Jammy berry flavors with a smooth finish. Dark in color but light bodied.

I rarely drink Pinots, as I prefer the heavier, full bodied varietals, but this Pinot is a real gem! Although it's medium bodied, it still has a nice weight in the mouth. Superb tannin, acid, and fruit balance that is gently oaked.

This is an easy drinking wine. Nice with food. Excellent to sip without.

Meiomi (May-OH-mee) meaning "coast" in the language of the Californian Wappo tribe, truly symbolizes the origin of this Pinot Noir. Each of the vineyards chosen for Meiomi offer the best expression of their appellations along the California coast: a layered blend of Santa Barbaras spice-filled aromas; Sonomas bright berry flavors; and Montereys rich textures. The wines are carefully crafted so that these characteristics continue to enhance and build on each other for an evocative and memorable Pinot Noir. - Winery

The Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir is quickly becoming one of our best sellers in the category. Crafted by Joe Wagner, son of Chuck Wagner who crafts the legendary Caymus Cabernets. This wine is sourced from California Coastal Vineyards, and has a stunning nose and plenty of complexity to make it compelling at this price point.

Aims high stylistically, offering candied black cherry and wild berry notes that turn firm and loamy, gaining depth, yet ending with a drying tannic edge. Drink now through 2020.

Offers a complex mix of dried berry, cranberry, anise and fresh earth. This is full-bodied, elegant and refined, with earth and fruit on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

Complex savory herb, black cherry and wild berry flavors are tight and firm, full-bodied and tannic, ending with a somewhat clipped finish. Drink now through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Bright, deep garnet color. Aromas of cola, blackberries and a sweet cedar note. A greatly layered palette abundant in flavor and texture. The first entry encases the mouth with a velvety richness. Then the wine unloads with flavors of bright cherry, cola,

A pretty good Pinot Noir, elegantly silky as it should be, with flavors of tart cherries, cola, red licorice and sandalwood. Itrsquo;s a bit too soft and sweet, but easy to drink.
