Have we got a special one for you today! Not only do we have perhaps the biggest discount we've ever offered, but it's also on a very special wine with quite a pedigree.
This single vineyard beauty, which normally retails for $48, comes from the Peterson Vineyard in the town of Comptche which is between Anderson Valley and the Mendocino coastline. It was aged 10 months in French oak, 40% of which was new. Just 342 cases were produced.
The winery was started by one of the founders (Justin Meyer) of the renowned Silver Oak Cellars - home to many a 94+ point, $100+ Napa and Alexander Valley Cabernet. Justin, who was also the winemaker at Silver Oak from 1972 until 2001, and his wife Bonny, saw the amazing potential of this special spot in Mendocino and picked it as the location for their family winery.
Here's how the winery came about:
Meyer Family Cellars is a small, family-owned winery situated in the picturesque Yorkville Highlands of Mendocino County. A leading artisanal winery in one of California’s emerging viticultural areas, Meyer Family Cellars blends establishing this new Appellation with the legacy of Silver Oak Cellars.
One of the state’s iconic wine brands, Meyer Family Cellars occupies a unique place in the story of California wine. It was established in 1987 by Silver Oak founders and former owners Justin and Bonny Meyer, who dreamt of a family wine brand that drew upon their extensive experience in the Napa and Alexander Valleys. Incorporated in the plan too was their son, Matt, a well-traveled student of wine and graduate of the enology and viticulture program at the University of California Davis.
Today Meyer Family Cellars is in the capable hands of co-winemakers Matt and Karen Meyer. Their approach to winemaking mirror the unique position of their product. While their wine incorporates “old world” balanced acidity and minerality with "new world" ripeness and forward fruit, similarly, Matt and Karen apply the wisdom gleaned from family history while welcoming new ideas into the process.
And now, we get the benefit of the family's know-how combined with these excellent Pinot Noir grapes from this emerging region. And since this is Reverse Wine Snob you won't have to pay anywhere near the normal price of $48 to give this one a try...

From the winery:
Tasting Notes: Peterson Vineyard is situated out in the cool of Comptche, a rural town between Anderson Valley and the Mendocino coastline. Due to its proximity to the coast, this Comptche Pinot Noir normally exhibits cool-climate characteristics. 2018 was a long and leisurely ripening year. The cool summer imparted red currant, blueberries, and a bit of earth and leather to the palate. A couple of warm weeks in early August added some ripe cherry, dark fruit, and perfume notes. We find this wine is particularly fun to decant and watch as it develops over a couple hours.
Harvest Notes: 2018 came in like a lion and went out like a lamb. The vines awoke two weeks late due to a cool spring and had ample crop, which had to be thinned. Then cool weather at the end of September brought an early rain which delayed ripening for most varietals. The Pinot Noir was one of the few varieties picked before the rain, so it was pampered as an only child in the winery for the last two weeks of September.
Winemaking Notes: The grapes were harvested early in the morning, then brought to the winery and hand-sorted. They were destemmed into half-ton inventors and allowed to cold soak for a week, punched down twice a day during that period. Once inoculated, punch downs continued until the wine was pressed a few days before fermentation completed. Once primary fermentation ended, the Pinot was transferred to barrel and stirred once a month until malolactic fermentation was complete. The wine not found to need any fining and was bottled nine months later.
The 2018 Meyer Family Cellars Peterson Vineyard Pinot Noir features lots of fruity and earthy aromas on the very attractive nose. Black cherry, cranberry, rhubarb, tomato plant, pepper, leather and even more present as you swirl and sniff.
The wine tastes very smooth with the black cherry and some red fruit notes presenting stronger in the mouth but all of those other wonderful touches from the nose also shine through.
It ends dry, with a bit of an oaky, leathery, long finish. This is a tremendous Pinot Noir. And if your willpower is strong enough to make these bottles last, they will make the perfect accompaniment to your Thanksgiving dinner!
