Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91

($46; from a parcel on richer soil, but planted on the cooler, windier western side of the property) Deep fresh red with ruby highlights. Blacker fruit aromas of blackberry and black raspberry. Intense dark berryflavors offer a sappy quality, with firm framing acidity. Broad and full pinot that coats the entire mouth. At once creamy and fresh. Finishes with firm but fine tannins. I like this!

About This Producer


In 1996 Melville Vineyards made the bold move from Knights Valley to the Santa Rita Hills appellation, where Ron Melville and his sons set up the estate property with a focus on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Santa Rita microclimate, with its coastal winds and fog, provided the Melvilles the perfect locale for their 139 planted acres of Pinot, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Viognier. Winemaker Greg Brewer, of Brewer-Clifton fame, oversees production at Melville.
