Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($46) Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, minerals, licorice and Asian spices, along with a high-pitched floral nuance. Tight and precise on entry, then sweet and expansive, offering pure red and dark berry flavors that are underscored by zesty minerality. Becomes spicier with air and finishes on notes of cinnamon and star anise. This seductive wine is delicious right now.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Two compelling Pinot Noirs include the 2008 Pinot Noir Terraces (14.5% alcohol), which exhibits beautiful forest floor, raspberry jam, underbrush, and subtle earth, and a full-bodied, round, multi-layered mouthfeel. This Pinot Noir is in a special place right now and comes from what is considered the best parcel in the Melville Vineyards. There are 435 cases of it. It should drink well for up to a decade.

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.
