PEIRSON MEYER Pinot Noir, Miller Vineyard, Russian River Valley

2014 PERISON MEYER Pinot Noir, Miller Vineyard, Russian River Valley

Review by Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

The 2014 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard was treated similarly as the Bateman, but is a much lighter color as it is from 100% Dijon clone 828. This has the forest floor, rose petals, sweet strawberry and cherry notes, but the killer aromatics is what gives this wine sensational appeal. It is medium-bodied, fleshy and should be drunk over the next 5-6 years to take advantage of the exceptional fragrance it offers. -94 pts.

2013 PERISON MEYER Pinot Noir, Miller Vineyard, Russian River Valley

More serious and concentrated is the 2013 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard. Dark ruby/plum-colored, the wine from this hillside vineyard (which is a sunny site, according to the winemakers) has a heavy forest floor-like set of aromatics, loamy soil notes, plenty of brooding plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit, a long, heady mouthfeel, full body, sweet tannin and good acidity. This is a CĂ´tes de Nuits-like beauty to drink over the next 7-10 years. - 92 pts.

2012 PERISON MEYER Pinot Noir, Miller Vineyard, Russian River Valley

The 2012 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard is marked by vibrant salinity and an overall sense of energy. Hints of orange peel, spices, mint and cedar add attractive overtones to the dark red stone fruits as the 2012 opens up in the glass. I very much like the sense of energy here. Expressive saline notes support the finish. -91 pts.

Another killer wine is the 2012 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard. Aged 14 months in 35% new French oak and made from destemmed fruit (Dijon clone 828), it is a textured, refined Pinot displaying lots of blackberry, root beer and forest floor notes, a lush, full-bodied texture, fine tannins and a heady mouthfeel. Drink now-2022. - 93 pts.
