Meiomi (May-oh-mee) is a Pinot Noir, that gets its fruit from the most noteworthy coastal areas in California. The wine is crafted, lush, balanced and luxurious. Three of the California’s most sought after coastal growing regions brilliantly meld together in this deeply flavored, stylish and truly balanced Pinot Noir; at its most fundamental core, it is an approachable, food friendly wine with a style and place all its own.
Wine EnthusiastThis bottling blends 60% Monterey County, 23% Santa Barbara County and 17% Sonoma County fruit to deliver bright and juicy berries on the nose, from strawberry to blackberry as well as graphite and tree bark. The flavors are very full, with more berries and star anise, although the texture is somewhat simple.
Wine SpectatorComplex, offering licorice, blackberry, lanolin and dusty, savory herb flavors. Struggles against gutsy tannins and veers toward a rustic character. Drink now.
