    Bright ruby-red. Exotically perfumed bouquet of fresh red berries, Asian spices, rose oil, cola and vanilla bean. Taut and incisive, with excellent clarity and surprising depth to the smoky, spice-accented raspberry and cherry flavors. This lively, graceful pinot packs a serious punch, finishing with noteworthy clarity and floral-driven persistence.

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.
