Meiomi means "coast" in the language of the native, coastal dwelling Wappo and Yuki tribes. Sweet fruit aromas with floral scents. On the palate raspberry and strawberry flavors, almost jammy, lightly toasted vanilla oak notes with a touch of black pepper. Generous acidity with fine tannins, good balance on medium finish. Good value, drink now. Tasting Sample.

Had too many big wines to give this a really fair shot. Anyways, nice fruit forward Pinot. A lot more body than most Pinots = good.

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.

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.
