Melville Estate Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Pinot Noir Estate Block M (formerly Carrie's) is endowed with serious energy, power and structure. One of the more austere wines in the Melville range, the Block M is much less expressive today than the other 2011s. Ideally, the Block M is best cellared for another year or two. Expressive savory notes add complexity and distinction on the finish. Greg Brewer describes the berries in this site as tiny in 2011. The stems were ripe enough for Brewer to use 60% whole clusters...91+" Antonio Galloni 7/13
