- Meiomi (Belle Glos) Pinot Noir 2012 Product #28741 (In Stock)
Wine Arrives Wednesday, August 27 - Reserve Yours Now!
Joe Wagner started Belle Glos to extend his family’s success and style with Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to Central Coast Pinot Noir. The Belle Glos wines have certainly done that with just two problems: the normal $50ish price point and the fancy-looking, but awkward-to-open dripping wax capsule each bottle sports.
Joe created Meiomi to offer a big dose of Belle Glos style and quality at a more reasonable, everyday, price. The bright red wax is gone (hurray!!!) and the fruit comes from the very best vineyards Joe can find up and down the California coast – sites in Sonoma, Monterey, and Santa Barbara. Just like Belle Glos, Meiomi is what we like to call “Power Pinot” for its lush, creamy, texture and big aromas and flavors of super-ripe fruit and spicy, vanilla and chocolate, oak. The 2012 edition is a bit brighter and more juicy than the 2011, with a beam of fresh berry juice running through the rich candied raspberry and black cherry cola notes. The oak is generous but well integrated, adding a dose of spice and milk chocolate. It’s big and powerful enough to drink will grilled strip steaks but soft and silky enough to just sip with friends. And, this week, it’s a very nice deal, too!
