Wine of the Week: Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir 2011 (CA) $20

By February 22, 2013

Follow me on:

The 2011 "Meiomi" Pinot is a smooth operator sourcing delicious fruit from some of California's top spots for Pinot Noir -  coastal counties bringing a winning trifecta from Monterey, Santa Barbara, and Sonoma.

Expect ripe raspberry and fresh strawberry fruit essences to make their mark, with plenty of support from the rich flavor profiles of dark chocolate covered espresso beans and a thick vanilla streak running down the mid-palate.  Meiomi rounds out in style with supple tannins and beautiful balance.  Downright delicious with rosemary lamb chops, pulled pork sandwiches, or bacon wrapped dates, Meiomi Pinot Noir offers up loads of food pairing versatility.

I was no fan of Pinot Noir. I considered the Pinots that I had tried to be thin and tasted watered down. I was introduced to Meiomi and now buy it by the case.I am a Pinot convert and hope to discover even more
rich tasting Pinot Noirs. Your choice of Wine of the Week confirms my tastes.

We recently had Meiomi Pinot Noir Bella Glos 2013 at J&G restaurant in the St. Regis, Deer Valley, Utah. Pinot can be very watery and taste like grape juice but this had a nice full body without being too strong. The price seems right considering we were charged $22 for a glass at the restaurant. Looking forward to buying a whole bottle for less than that!
