Sell so much of this, it's good. But not in a traditional way. Very extracted for Pinot. It's a cab drinkers pinot.

Likes WOW for a Great Everyday Pinot Noir this really shows well. I rated the 2011 vintage a 92 same as the Spec, the 2012 I gave it a 87, with the Spec giving it a 89.. Well I think this is Better than Both!!! I will be the First to rate the 2013 a 93+.. Let me know your thoughts. This has the 2011 Structure and Body and something additional fruit galore with bright acidity. Bravo from the shore in Brigantine on 19th Street. Beautiful Night in August 2014.

Spice, berry, richness. Love this "blend" of Vineyards for a tasty Pinot.

Wow. Did not taste like pinot to me at all. Sweet to the point of almost being off dry. Finish that lingers way, way past when you wish it was gone. Just not what I want really ever, but definitely not when I want pinot noir.

I have had Meiomi before but an earlier vintage like 2010. It made me turn my head at a good QPR that I new I would come back for more. The nose opens up wit bright red fruit, strawberry, red raspberry, there is a sweet spice not and a light smokey campfire note. On the palate there is lots of big red fruit that comes forward. Sweet strawberry, savory red raspberry, wonderful smooth creamy mouth feel with vanilla and a nice acidity. There is a good long finish with spice right at the end. For $17 bones the QPR is right on.

Maybe I'm just a Burgundy/Oregon Pinot snob. Fruity, sweet, one dimensional. Juicy enough to drink without thinking about it, but pretty nondescript.

Tortured by stewy, overripe fruit. Couldn't finish this 375 ml on a 6 hr flight!

Quite possibly the worst wine since Yellowtail. Raisiny with residual sugar.
