Meiomi means “coast” in the language of the native, coastal dwelling Wappo and Yuki tribes. Joe Wagner developed Meiomi in 2006 while working for his father, Chuck, at Caymus Vineyard. The wine was instantly a huge success, and rightly so. With grapes sourced from Monterey County (60%), Santa Barbara County (23%), and Sonoma County (17%), this medium body wine is mouthwatering, easy to drink, and simply a bargain.
A hint of Bing cherries and other red fruit, a deft touch of sweetness, and just the right amount of oak influence with tame tannins, all make for a delicious wine for every day and any day. And as a bonus, this California Pinot Noir can be enjoyed with pasta, fish, fowl, or red meat. Biba and I recently shared a bottle with our two daughters, and of course, we all had something different to eat. I’m sure you understand.
For the entire month of August 2018, we are offering the 2016 Meiomi Pinot Noir at the reduced price of $36 per 750 ml bottle or $9 per glass. I think you will like this wine.
