Meiomi Wines has firmly planted roots from Napa Valley. Meiomi means “coast” in the language of the native, coastal dwelling Wappo and Yuki tribes, and pays tribute to and symbolizes the origin of this Pinot Noir. Meiomi is a high style Pinot Noir that is shaped, more than anything else, by the fruit sources that lay the foundation of the blend. A pure bred enjoyment wine, Meiomi Wine is built to accommodate any pairing from food to friends. Unifying California’s most noteworthy coastal areas opens the door for a dynamic and opulent wine that is ready to enjoy whenever you are.
Each of Meiomi’s vineyards are chosen for its unique flavors, textures and aromas. Bucking tradition, this Pinot Noir is a blend of multiple vineyards stretching along the California coast starting from Sonoma, to Monterey, and Santa Barbara. Joseph J. Wagner is a fifth-generation winemaker from a family with farming and winemaking roots in the Napa Valley since the 1880s. In his youth, he worked many spring and summer days in the vineyard and cellar of Caymus, learning the basics from pulling leaves, to dragging hoses. Then he began to focus his efforts on what was to become his passion and career in the wine business. He has been overseeing vineyard operations and winemaking since 2002 and is now Consulting Winemaker for Meiomi.
Meiomi’s Vintage 2014 Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the perfect holiday wine to create any festive experience. Choosing Meiomi wine you will know you have the flawless wine not just from their scents, but the flavor. Meiomi’s Vintage Chardonnay has tasting notes that are bright with enticing layers of tropical fruit which are heightened by the enchantingly sweet smells of brown sugar, honey, and butterscotch. Notes of mango and citrus zest enhance the complex palate. The lush, creamy mouthfeel is elevated by subtle flavors of honey and butterscotch.
The Meiomi Pinot Noir is rich, with a garnet color and a ruby edge. The wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. The well-integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom seen in Pinot Noir. Meiomi Pinot Noir has a consistent profile of supple tannins, silky texture, and balanced acidity that makes it the perfect wine to enjoy with a wide array of food. It pairs particularly well with tomato-based pasta dishes, thin-crust pizza, grilled lamb, and turkey.
