Meiomi has launched their 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2019 vintage was a moderate growing season throughout spring and summer on the California Coast, the company says. Due to cooler temperatures, harvest started slightly later than normal, around the first week of September. Consistent and moderate temperatures allowed harvest to maintain a steady pace, where it finished in early November. Ideal temperatures and lack of precipitation allowed the grapes to fully ripen and get harvested at the optimal time, the company says, “giving our cabernet sauvignon beautiful color, texture, and flavor.”
The 2019 Meiomi Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.5% ABV, aged six months in French and American oak, to bring out its fruit flavors and subtle baking spice aromas.
The final regional tallies for this California red were 56% Monterey County fruit, 23% Sonoma and 21% Santa Barbara.
The wine opens to reveal aromas of juicy blackberry, boysenberry and bramble, the company reports, along with notes of toasty vanilla and graham cracker; the full flavors are highlighted by a plush, velvety mouthfeel.
The suggested retail price is $24.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
