Wws Pinot Noir Meiomi 2008
Belle Glos showcases distinctive Pinot Noirs produced from some of California’s top wine-growing regions. The vineyard locations can all be described as coastal, but the climate differences are significant, depending on the amount of fog, wind, sunlight, and soil type at each site. Each wine is crafted to distill the purest essence of the vineyard into elegant expressions of California Pinot Noir.
This is a really impressive bottle. Tasted in Glen Ellyn 12/4/2010.

Aromas of black cherry, plum, pepper, spice, grapefruit, wet forest floor and fresh grass open. Roses and cherry notes soon mingle with a hint of creamy vanilla, a waft of chocolate and a background of woodsy earthiness. Freshly pulled roots, damp soil and green moss follow, with faint scents of hibiscus and honeysuckle. At 30 minutes, nuances of rose, blackberry and dark fruits emerge beneath the brighter cherry lead notes. Intro on the palate includes an initial peppery heat, followed quickly by strong cherry and vanilla, with hints of dried green apple. A slight taste of pepper and spice with a mix of new leather, forest roots, and chocolate make for a sultry and seductive mid-palate. Well-balanced acidity helps support evolving movements of cherry, raspberry, cranberry and plum with gentle grass and vegetative undertones, including beets, radishes, and carrots. Cherry is sustained from the beginning and throughout, with high-hat pepper in the background, and an occasional strawberry swell. Spice and herbs emerge and evolve, especially with bites of fish, cheese, or chocolate. All too short a finish, but exquisite during its short life. Opens to its peak in an hour to an hour and a half, when an arrangement of herbs, roses and cherries dominate and thread through other aromas in reprise. Excellent Pinot Noir for the price.
Not a big tannic pinot, but nice fruit and very well balanced with a nice earthy finish. Good value
One-of-a-kind red wine with a distinct cherry soda taste
Really enjoyed this wine. Had it at a private tasitng last night and bought two bottles. Very nice Pinot Noir, easy drinking at an excellent price. Hints of tobacco and a bit of dustyness.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Mildly candied and showing overtones of strawberry jam that attest to its ripeness, this diffident effort is fairly loose as far as defined Pinot Noir character is concerned, and its lazy, lackluster manner comes as a warning that it is not likely to do well with age.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
