I met Joe back in 2012 at a paired dinner at the Boston Wine Festival (event report). He was representing the Wagner family's wines in a retrospective tasting of Caymus Special Selection as well as thier other brands (Mer Soleil, Conundrum, and Meiomi). Great guy. And that family knowns wine branding.
It seems like Joe has branched off on his own with a line of wines in the vein of Meiomi - fruit forward blends of vineyards from a desirable region that comes together in a consistently satisfying relatively affordable package that presents a delicious value.
Meiomi - the template wine for this brand. $19.99.
Then there's Carne Humana - a Napa Valley red blend.$29.99.
After that there's Elouan - an Oregon Pinot Noir analagous to Meiomi. $22.99.
Finally, there's Beran - a California Zinfandel. $19.99.
I thought to myself "how on earth am I going to track these wines down?". Turns out Wine.com carries them all (in Massachusetts anyway). The links above are affiliate links which means I get a commission if you click through and buy the wines from Wine.com. Thanks in advance if you use them.
If you follow the instructions in this post you can get these wines for $30 off $100 with free shipping. Quite a deal.
So far I've ordered the Elouan and I'll look forward to tasting that and sharing my thoughts. After that I'll give the Carne Humana and Beran a whirl.
Question of the Day: Have you tasted any of these wines? If so, what did you think? If not, how does the notion of the Meiomi model strike you?
