August Briggs 2015 Pinot Meunier
A couple weeks ago we emailed how excited we were to finally be able to get our hands on the August Briggs wines again (Wishes Red & Russian River Pinot Noir). One of our favorite wines that they do has always been their Pinot Meunier, but they make so little and it's so popular that they don't distribute it anymore and save it for their mailing list customers. We've been able to talk them in to sending us three cases! It isn't even available on their website! The 2015 Pinot Meunier is an elegant wine that is like velvet in a glass. Bright aromas and flavors of cranberry, tart cherry, and vanilla bean dominate the bouquet with just a hint of sandalwood. The palate has a smooth texture with nice balancing acidity that gives it a long and memorable finish.
