The wine pours dark in the glass with colors of deep plum. Perhaps darker than the average Pinot Noir, light doesn’t shine through this wine. Meiomi Pinot Noir is very leggy in the glass with many slow dripping tears that remain on the sides of the glass for some time.
Upon first sniff, I immediately noticed a good spicy whiff of alcohol in the nose. You want to allow the wine to get some air for several minutes in order to mute this effect. This wine is aromatic with a very lofty nose. From afar I picked up some hints of mocha. Up close revealed leathery black raspberry scents. All in all, very enjoyable.
Elegant, cherry, berry, vanilla, medium-bodied, this beautiful Pinot Noir produced by Caymus carries aromas of tobacco, dark red fruits and fresh berries. The rich cherry flavor is complemented by notes of cedar, raspberry and strawberry. Enjoy with turkey, salmon or beef dishes.
Tasting Notes – Bright, deep garnet color. Aromas of cola, blackberries and a sweet cedar note. A greatly layered palette abundant in flavor and texture. The first entry incases the mouth with a velvety richness. Then the wine unloads with flavors of bright cherry, cola, dried leaves undertone with vanilla, leather and high style oak. The many layers emerge independently, then refocus while the supple tannins carry the wine through to a lingering, succulent finish.
