Meyer Family Vineyards 2011 Reimer Vineyard Pinot Noir - 89-91pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Production: 222 cases
Date Tasted: April 26th, 2013
Tasting Notes: The intensity of the nose of this Pinot, produced with fruit sourced from an East Kelowna vineyard, can be appreciated from across a room. Bold, bright aromas of cherry, plum, raspberry seeds, vanilla, dried flowers and hints of oak spice and cracked earth mingle beautifully. Classic Pinot texture and tannin structure follows on the dry, equally intense palate, though, the flavour profile shifts to a more savoury tone with bright red fruit playing a supporting role. Finishes long and a bit bitter with mouth watering tartness and lingering notes of oak and raspberry seeds.
Give this intriguing wine another year or 2 to mature and soften and you'll be glad you did when your patience is rewarded with improved acid integration. Drink late 2014-2017.
