Great body, ripe fruit and candy.
Bitter, watery, afraid it could be from two bad bottles, but TWO? And it wasn't disgusting. Just very unpleasant. The nose almost suggests fortification, but not the palette. Note this Meridian wine is a product of Italy, not their Napa vineyards. Italian pinot? This one leaves a lot to be desired
can you give me an article why this meridian wine become a product of italy while the maker or the producer is the meridian vineyard...can you give me an explaination please!!!
External Reviews for Meridian Vineyards Pinot Noir California
This is light, fruity and soft, ranging in flavor from raspberry and strawberry to tart cherry. Remarkably easy on the wallet, and ready for a steak.
Medium-bodied, with spicy cinnamon, berry and cedar notes that pick up a touch of fresh earth and blueberry on the finish. Drink now.
Red-fruited with gentle pinot noir sweetness, this is built for lasagna layered with mozzarella and pork ragu.
I happened to taste this right after a Pinot that cost five times as much, and this one wasnrsquo;t shamed. In fact, it stood up quite well. No, it didnrsquo;t have the concentration, but the purity of fruit, crisp acids and silky texture make for a lovely Pinot Noir.
Round, with strawberry and raspberry notes underscored by toasty oak and ripe tannins. Drink now through 2003.
From a winery that doesnrsquo;t ever seem to do anything wrong comes this fine, almost complex wine. It would probably be fantastic from a better vintage. As it is, itrsquo;s good, with some density to it, and spicy, aromatic fruit that satisfies despite thinness in the middle palate. Considering how hard it is to find good Pinot at this price, you have to consider it a great value.
A medium-bodied Pinot with flavors of herb and cherry over well-integrated toasty oak notes.
