Meiomi Pinot Noir

Recommended by: Greg Rowe, president of the Wichita chapter of the American Institute of Wine and Food

Price: $20, but can be found on sale for $16

Tastes like: “I’d classify this as a medium bodied pinot, fruit forward with light tannins. One can taste ripe cherry and berries, with a smooth, almost caramel finish. This is a very food-friendly wine but can also be enjoyed on its own.”

Pairs well with: “Grilled lamb chops, duck breast, grilled salmon, pork loin, turkey.”

Comments: “Meiomi is owned and made by Joe Wagner, son of Chuck Wagner of Caymus fame. Joe also started Belle Glos winery, which has wonderful (and somewhat pricier) pinots. This is a great pinot for the money. Drink now. I wouldn’t age it.”
