The 2006 Pinot Noir Terraces is deep ruby/purple in color, displays lots of red and blue fruits, is full-bodied, doesn't have the nuances of the 115 or the High Density, but is not far behind in character, power, richness, and appeal. It should drink nicely for 5-7 years as well.

Site Blog: Wine And I The wine is brick red in color with soft violet hues, medium in body and extract. A profound mix of aromas are present on the nose- bing cherry, raspberry, Dr. Pepper, cloves, cinnamon, truffles, mushrooms. The flavors are ripe and powerful but very elegant- black cherry, vanilla, red currants, mushrooms, forest floor, allspice, and raspberry all come to mind. The alcohol comes in at 14.9%, but the wine doesn't suffer for it. It has a tart and vibrant acidity and tannins that are silky. The wine drinks with a luxurious feel in the mouth. The finish is long with plenty more red fruit and spice.

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.
