Meiomi means “coast” in the language of the California Wappo tribe, symbolizing the origin of this great Pinot Noir.
Each of the three vineyards chosen for Meiomi offers the best express of their appellations along the California coast, blended to achieve balance, complexity, and richness of flavor. Santa Barbara provides a layered blend of spice-filled aromas, the Sonoma region brings tastes of bright berry, and Monterey offers rich textures.
Pinot Noir is the quintessential wine style for food pairing, and Meiomi is no exception.
It carries a rich garnet color with a ruby edge, opening to reveal dynamic aromas of ripe strawberry, bright cherry, and faint notes of spicy oak and vanilla. The complexity of the palate smoothly layers rich red currant notes and baking spice flavors with light touches of smoke, earth, and leather. Its balanced, velvety texture and supple tannins carry the wine through to a lingering, succulent finish.
Meiomi Pinot Noir’s tannic profile, silky texture, and balanced acidity make it ideal for fowl dishes, snowy weekend roasts, or hanging out at the grill.
Locally, you can find Meiomi Pinot Noir, or its sister Chardonnay, at larger, family-owned liquor stores like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, which offersr you a superior selection with knowledgeable staff who take the intimidation out of wine buying.
