Meiomi Pinot Noir 2016
Ultimate Wine Challenge
This bottling blends 60% Monterey County, 23% Santa Barbara County and 17% Sonoma County fruit to deliver bright and juicy berries on the nose, from strawberry to blackberry as well as graphite and tree bark. The flavors are very full, with more berries and star anise, although the texture is somewhat simple.
Complex, offering licorice, blackberry, lanolin and dusty, savory herb flavors. Struggles against gutsy tannins and veers toward a rustic character. Drink now.
