Meyer Family Vineyards 2011 Pinot Noir - 90pts
Availability: Direct from winery here. VQA stores
Production: 930 cases
Date Tasted: April 19h, 2013
Tasting Notes: A gorgeous, complex array of cherry-cola, raspberry, sweet oak, vanilla, forest floor and warm earth aromas greet you on the nose of this blend of Pinot Noir batches from numerous locations all over the Okanagan Valley. Followed by a dry, nicely textured palate with medium tannins and a flavour profile that mimics some of the complexity of the expressive nose, though, with less fruit and more mineral notes making it a great match for classic pairings like roasted duck or salmon.
This entry-level Pinot Noir makes for an excellent introduction to the Meyer Family Vineyards line-up. Enjoy it in its youth as you wait for the winery's premium, single vineyard Pinots to mature. Drink 2013-2015.
