Meiomi Pinot Noir 2013
"Dark, deep garnet color. Sumptuous aromas of ripe berries, vanilla and spicy oak. Upon entry, the mouth is coated with a velvety richness, but the acidity enlivens the weight and pops the flavors. The senses will pick up light roasted almond, cranberry, raspberries with ever so a hint of barnyard complexity--earthy and gamey. Underlined with a sweet oak character, mocha and cola. An extremely layered wine both in structure and flavor. These textured layers emerge independently, and then rejoin beautifully into a rounded, rich and supple wine with a succulent finish." -Winery
External Reviews for Meiomi Pinot Noir
Meiomi means "coast" in the local native American tongue and the coast is where all of the grapes used in Meiomi Pinot Noir come from. A blend from a series of vineyards all selected by Joe Wagner, Winemaker & Viticulturist for Belle Glos and Meiomi, stretching along the California coast starting from Sonoma, to Monterey, and last but not least, Santa Barbara. Each vineyard is chosen for its unique flavors, textures and aromas. Grapes are cold-soaked before fermentation and then the wine is aged in French oak barrels for nine months. Of course the Belle Glos single vineyards are all located in these regions and we'll bet there's good dose of Belle Glos fruit in this rich, bold Pinot Noir. The Wine Spectator scored the 2011 vintage 92 points and said "Dark and rich, showing toasty mocha oak flavors, with a beam of wild berry, raspberry, cola, vanilla and spice. Long on the finish. Drink now through 2020." Some call it a second label to Belle Glos but Meiomi shows first label and first rate quality and character.
Give thanks this Thanksgiving season. This gift basket comes with one bottle of Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir, Thanksgiving Wine Charms and assorted foods items. Belle Glos Meiomi is from the famous Caymus Vineyards.
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, dried leaves undertoned with vanilla, leather and high style oak. The many layers emerge independently, then refocus while the supple tannins carry the wine through to a lingering, succulent finish.
Rich yet medium-weight, offering an exciting interplay of berry, oak, earth and spice notes, with subtle edges to the blueberry, raspberry, mocha and fresh-turned earth flavors. Ends with an aftertaste of melted black licorice. Drink now through 2020. 317,592 cases made.
A complex wine with a rich bouquet of cherries, berries and hints of spicy new oak. It has flavors reminiscent of black cherry, currant and strawberry, followed by a rich, spicy texture and a long silky finish.
A brilliant, rich garnet color, it opens with lifted fruit aromas of ripe strawberry, plum and sweet Bing cherry, along with light cedar and spicy vanilla notes. Bold and expressive boysenberry, plum, cherry cola and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate. The vibrant acidity is well balanced by sweet oak and subtle herbal notes, with structure and depth seldom seen in Pinot Noir. - Winery From the dense fogs and brilliant sun, to the high winds, cool coastal air and diverse terrain; California’s coast presents many challenges. And yet it’s still one of the best winegrowing regions for producing world-class Pinot Noir. Each of the vineyards chosen for this wine offers the best expression of their respective appellations, carefully blended to achieve balance, complexity and richness of flavor.
