Tastes of leather, smoke, berry and maple, there was also a hint of spice and pepper. It was an inexpensive wine, and pairs well with food.
A full body red, smooth, well rounded and good finish. I tried it with grilled chicken gizzards and it was excellent. This wine is fun to drink.

External Reviews for Meridian Vineyards Pinot Noir California
Meridian Cabernet Sauvignon is decisive and knows exactly where it stands. There's no mincing around - from the first taste, its notes of black cherry, currant, vanilla and spice are clean and straight forward. This wine will stand up well to a robust steak dinner for two, can handily go toe-to-toe with a leg of lamb at an Easter or Passover feast, and makes an excellent match to a tri tip roast prepared for a special occasion (for example, 'it's the weekend - let's celebrate!').Meridian Cabernet SauvignonCalifornia, 2005
