Melville Estate Pinot Noir Verna's Vineyard Santa Barbara County 2013

Member Review by araamse:

A rich, complex wine with a medium-full body, dark berry and cherry aromas, cinnamon and spices. It has a subtle earthiness that gives it depth, and balanced acidity and tannins.

Shy strawberry aromas, and a silky palate of wild strawberries. Simple and straightforward, light to medium bodied.

Melville Pinot Noir from the Verna Estate is very bright and food-friendly in the 2011 vintage. Red fruit aromas of cherry, plum skin and red berry fruit mix with hints of red tea, cinnamon stick and tobacco.

Red fruit aromas of cherry, plum skin and red berry fruit mix with hints of red tea, cinnamon stick and tobacco. Pretty floral notes of cherry blossom and red rose mingle with earthy notes of underbrush, fern and sage. The palate has a plush and vibrant texture expanding this complexity leaving the mouth satiated and complete.

The forward, robust nose is distinctly central coast pinot with its sweet cherry, strawberry, and roses. Round and lush on the palate, the tannins are well integrated tannins, supporting the wine without overpowering the bright red fruit. There is ... Alex Shaw.

Vibrant ruby-red colors coupled with attractive aromas of dried red fruits such as cherry, currant, plum and strawberry. Essences of cinnamon, cider and red-orange tea intermingle with earthy elements of forest pine, rose wood and sagebrush. Flirting in the background are hints of peppermint, pistachio, pink-shaved ice and ponzu. On the palate the wine shows both a driven cranberry-like feel balanced by richness from its density. It nishes both savory and sweet.

Medium garnet core with a slightly lighter ruby red rim. Primary aromas of ripe strawberry, rhubarb, and ripe red cherries framed by a hint of oak. Light fennel aromas create a nice backdrop to the forward fruit. Lush on entry with abundant red fruit... Alex Lallos.
