Natalie's Score: 92/100

Lovely fleshy ripe cherries and black raspberry on the nose and palate of this luscious red wine. Nice balancing acidity with fleshy black cherry. Supple, smooth, silky, seductive come hither Caifornian Pinot Noir. Pair with hamburgers and sweet relish or salsa.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce, roasted pork loin, Tourtière, prime rib roasted.

Reviews and Ratings

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This is an outstanding wine with blueberry and cedar on the nose and black cherry, blueberry, spice, earth and some red licorice on the palate. The flavors on the palate come together in a beautifully complex flavor that lingers well past the soft finish. Serve with lamb or pork tenderloin.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Meiomi's 2014 Pinot Noir is a blend of Pinot Noir from three beautiful wine regions along the California coast: Monterey County (48%), Sonoma County (27%), and Sanata Barbara County (25%). Each lot was individually fermented and aged in 100% French oak, 60% new, to add additional texture whilst preserving the elegant and complex fruit characteristics. Blended to achieve the greatest complexity, the result is a very expressive, dry, and flavourful medium-full bodied Pinot Noir. The nose shows dried cranberry, black cherry, cedar, and a slight earthiness. The palate is loaded with sweet dark fruit, black cherry, dried cranberry, mocha, baking spices, and kirsch. Big and bold, this creamy-smooth Pinot is the finest vintage of Meiomi I recall tasting. They've struck a beautiful balance in this vintage. Very impressed. Enjoy with braised lamb, roasted pork with fruit chutney, or one of my favourites - Thanksgiving Turkey dinner with sweet cranberry sauce. Tasted September 2015. 91 points.
