Vivid red. Pure, high-pitched aromas of red berries, Asian spices and rhubarb, with a floral nuance in the background. Spicy and taut, offering tangy cranberry and pomegranate and a deeper suggestion of bitter cherry. Finishes bright and long, with lingering spiciness and hints of blood orange and dusty minerals. This wine was made with 100% whole clusters and could use some time to unwind.

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.
