WineDiva's Review

Expressive, juicy, approachable. Produced by and bottled at Meyer Family Vineyards, Mayhem was developed with a nod to new market opportunities--the wines offer different selections and prices than MFV wines, so compliment rather than compete. The line is a combined effort of MFV's Janice Stevens Meyer and Jak Meyer, with family members Terry Meyer Stone and Andrew Stone. Their motto: From chaos and mayhem come opportunities.
This Merlot (84%) and Cab Franc blend lines up aromas of juicy currents and prune plums, smoked meat and white pepper, toasted brown spice atop distinct salted/umami notes. Expressive red fruit leads the palate along with roasted red bell peppers, roasted spice, fleur de sel and tobacco flavours. It's a wonderful weekday dinner red for succulent meats or roasted veg, hearty stews and soups or burgers.
Second review, November 2021
A savoury red for BBQ or hearty soups or pastas, this food-friendly red offers spiced smoked meats, dusty plums, wild red berries, roasted coffee, charred carob and is underscored by earthy aromas. The palate follows suit with its succulent meaty character, spice and mocha flavours.
