Vivid red. Pretty aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, rose and spicecake. Supple, silky and restrained, with alluring sweetness on the middle palate. The red berry flavors are penetrating and impressively pure; silky tannins add shape and provide structure but fade quickly into the fruit. Spreads out on the sweet, spicy, very long finish.

The 2007 Pinot Noir Mount Carmel cuts a stylistic path between the rich, fruit-driven Melville and the more earthy, barnyardy, terroir-driven Clos Pepe. The Mount Carmel offers plenty of blue and red fruits intermixed with hints of smoke, roasted herbs, earth, pomegranate, and underbrush. The sweetness of the tannins, beautiful full-bodied mouthfeel, and good acidity all reflect another brilliant Pinot Noir from this exceptionally talented duo. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

Serves up a pleasing beam of mineral, spice and green apple fruit that's intense and complex, clean and delicate. Drink now through 2011. 480 cases made.
