($24) Greenish gold. Pungent aromas of lime, peach skin, mint, crushed stone and anise, plus a suggestion of spun sugar. Juicy, supple and palate-coating, with a dusty tactile quality to the lush flavors of pineapple and pit fruits. A seductive, rich but vibrant rendition of viognier that would be great with spicy Asian dishes.

Leesy (beer-like), acidic and spritzy. A far cry from the 2007 bottling we enjoyed so much. Just a bad bottle, perhaps? Disappointing.

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.
