(half of this fruit was picked at 23 degrees Brix on December 1st; vinified with 50% whole clusters): Dark ruby. Intense black raspberry, cherry and floral aromas are complicated by notes of cracked pepper and anise. Supple, sweet and elegant, showing excellent depth and a broad range of dark fruit and floral qualities. Silky and intensely fruity on the gently tannic finish, which leaves sexy floral and spice notes behind.

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.
