"Very fresh and rather open in feel, with gently crushed plum and black cherry fruit, gilded with a hint of warm paving stone. Stays bright overall through the finish. Score range: 89-92 -JM " (WS)

"The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Meyney has a nose of cassis, tar, earth and bay leaves with redcurrants. The medium-bodied palate is a little lean and herbal, with firm, grainy tannins." (WA)

"The 2016 Meyney is a bold, powerful wine. Tobacco, menthol, chocolate, spice and torrefaction notes all add shades of darkness. Meyney is potent and quite broad in feel, and yet everything is very nicely balanced. Although not especially subtle, Meyney delivers the goods, and then some." (VM)

"Wild nose. Impressive, deep hue and a wealth of fresh, violet-like aromas, as well as cassis, graphite and dark cherries. The palate has a very sleek, fine, powerful core of tannins that bring a lot of depth and deliver rich dark-fruit flavor. A classic Meyney. Best since 1961! Try from 2023." (JS)

"Almost opaque in color, this is a beauty! The wine is rich, concentrated and has depth of flavor with length. The fruit is unadulterated purity and unreal deliciousness; the finishes builds into a sensory experience of taste and feel. This is the best vintage of Meyney ever produced. 4465 Views Tasted Apr 29, 2017" (JL)
