Meyer Family Vineyards 2012 Pinot Noir, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
The entry level pinot noir for Meyer is still excellent quality. Lots of bright red cherry, violet, and damson plum aromas mix with clove, five-spice, game meat, and some dried herbs. The palate is light bodied, silky textured, and fresh.
Meyer Family Vineyards 2012 Micro Cuvée, McLean Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
A very serious, complex wine with ripe red cherry, game meat, blueberry, violet, orange zest, and potpourri aromas that keep evolving and changing in the glass. The palate has a beautiful silky texture with lots of meat, minerals, and paprika spice with great red fruit intensity and crisp freshness. There is structure and flavour concentration to age for a decade.
Meyer Family Vineyards 2012 Tribute Series, Kelly Hrudey Chardonnay, Old Main Road Vineyard, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada
Lemon juice and zest, white peach, nectarine, and grapefruit mix with more savoury, nut, lees, and subtle oak spice notes. The palate is medium-bodied, with crisp acidity, racy lemon, and mineral acidity that melds into a lovely texture with the riper stone fruit, pineapple, cantaloupe melon, and then lees, caramel, and slight buttery notes. It’s seamless from the start through to the crisp, long finish.
