Bella Mcdowell rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Meiomoi Pinot Noir has a rich nose with notes of plum, oak, and cherry. Tastes of dark fruit are enveloped in oak and savory herbs. The earthy tannins are followed by a smooth finish. I really enjoyed this Pinot and it's a great find for the money!
Jaclyn Stuart reviewed this wine as follows:

This Pinot Noir has been extremely popular with my friends and customers. It is a little bit bigger than Belle Glos' other single vineyard Pinots, but it is remarkably versatile. Rich cherry notes with a hint of black tea and dried herbs. Delicious with duck and pork.
Vera Czerny rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This Pinot Noir with lovely floral aroma, very silky on the palate with rich tones of ripe berries, black cherry with spiced cocoa and tobacco. Quite acidic on the first taste (which I like, it makes it more accessible to different food pairings) but perfectly balanced with a rich, fruity goodness.

When you leave it in your mouth for a few seconds, you can feel a touch of vanilla on the finish.This wine is a book example of Pinot Noir variety and the longer you leave the bottle open, the more body and flavor you are going to enjoy. Definitely worth decanting it!

Natalie's Review

Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir 2009, Sonoma Valley, Monterey County, Santa Barbara County, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: Belle Glos is owned by Joseph J. Wagner of the Caymus Wagners. Medium ruby with a purple rim. Aromas suggest smoky cherry, new leather, ripe plum and cloves. Dry, fruity and quite generous. Soft tannins and gentle acids give the wine verve. A very good warm-climate Pinot. Medium-full bodied with a long finish. Enjoy it tonight or cellar it 2-3 years. My note: dark chocolate and black cherry with vanilla smoke wrapped around it. Full-bodied and smooth. Drink: 2010-2015. 130138 14.50% D 750 mL  $26.95 Score: 90/100. June 11, 2011 Scrumptious Seafood Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
