2013 Meiomi California Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., pH 3.81, TA 0.59, RS 6.9 g/L, $21, screwcap. · Dark reddish color in the glass. The aromas of charcoal, tobacco, blackest fruits and spice are not particularly appealing. Sappy and sweet on the palate with very ripe flavors of purple and black fruits, a floral note, and oak-driven spice, vanilla and coffee highlights. Smoothly textured with modest tannins in a richly styled wine that lacks vibrancy. Score: 87. Reviewed March 12, 2016
