Meiomi Pinot Noir

Meiomi Pinot Noir is now in stock! If you haven’t tried Meiomi Pinot Noir you are in for a treat. This wine opens to reveal fruit aromas of strawberry, jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. This wine ends with boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry, and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate. Well integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom found in Pinot Noir. The fruit for the Meiomi Pinot Noir comes from three vineyards in the Santa Barbara, Sonoma, and Monterey areas.

Meiomi was founded in 2007 by Joe Wagner with the goal of blending Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from three costal appellations for vintage consistency, costal integrity, and abundant flavors. Joe has accomplished his goal with this beautiful Pinot Noir. Being a fifth generation Napa winemaker and son of Chuck Wagner, founder of Caymus Vineyards, Joe now serves as Meiomi’s consulting winemaker. Priced at $16.99 this wine is ready for you today at the Costco FO!! I enjoyed a bottle of the Meiomi Pinot Noir last night while visiting friends and I give this wine a rating of 94!!!

Cheers!!!

Pinot Noir

Wines made with Pinot Noir are known for their elegance and refinement. They usually offer an exotic bouquet along with a velvety, mouth feeling texture. Pinot Noir has flavors of ripe fruit, cherry, chocolate, toast, and spices. Most famous in the Burgundy region of France, where it is the only grape permitted to be used in the famous red wines of Cote d’Or. Generally Pinot Noirs are low in tannins and pair with salmon, turkey, pork, and cheese. Pinot Noir sales increased greatly when the movie Sideways was released several years ago.
