Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Meiomi's 2015 Pinot Noir is a blend of Pinot Noir from three beautiful wine regions along the California coast: Monterey County (52%), Sonoma County (24%), and Sanata Barbara County (24%). 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 rich and smoky black cherry, creme de cassis, cola, baking spices, cedar, and dried herbs. The palate is incredible smooth, round, and luscious. Loaded with sweet dark fruit, black cherry, dried cranberry, mocha, baking spices, and kirsch. Another terrific vintage that's sure to be loved. Enjoy with braised lamb, roasted pork with cherry-balsamic sauce, or simply on its own after a long day at the office. Tasted January 2017. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2015 vintage of Meiomi Pinot Noir was vinified with California fruit from Monterey County 52%, Sonoma County 24%, Santa Barbara County 24%. A fruit-forward concentrated red berry Pinot, showing mocha with intensely aromatic spiciness with cinnamon, clove and a hint of vanilla. This wine is fruitful and complex, with medium acidity, medium tannins, well-integrated at its youthful place and ready to enjoy now. Enjoy on its own or with sweet BBQ, sweet and spicy sauced braised meats. Tasted Feb 2017. Rated 90/100. Bespoketastings.ca
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Raspberry and blueberry notes with some vanilla and cream giving a smooth finish.
Meg Charette - WSET ADV rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A beautiful expression of a California Pinot Noir, being surprisingly and lusciously rich. The fruit found on the nose and palate being loads of ripe cranberries, red cherries, and strawberry jam. The well integrated oak on this wine gives it so much character and complexity. Aromas and tasting notes of milk chocolate covered coffee beans, stewed raisins, cinnamon and toffee. The mouth feel is smooth with tannins having a suede like texture. Moderate, well balanced acidity with a medium to full body. A lingering tickle of cinnamon on the tongue leads into long finish of chocolate covered cranberries and coffee beans. May pair well with a classic bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, or any classic bacon dish. The bacon really heightening and accentuating all the tasting notes found from the oak.
