Melville Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County Estate Verna's 2006
A richer and slightly darker color than the Verna's pinot noir this wine exhibits more red and black fruits such as currants cassis and plum. Spice aromatics stretch the gamut from clove and incense to sandalwood and orange-spice tea. Earthy elements of pomegranate red beets brine and minerals also shine through. The mouthfeel is plush and velvety with excellent presence while countered by a structural backbone of acidity giving the wine completeness and resolve.

A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2006 Melville Pinot Noir Clone 114 750ml
Tasting Notes: Garnet hued, this wine is reminiscent of a wild red fruit pie consisting of strawberry, raspberry and cherry balanced by floral essences of rose petal, sandalwood and orange blossom. Earthy elements of forest floor, red roasted beets and chanterelles also intermingle with hints of cinnamon spice, thyme, lavender and pink peppercorns. The wine is gracious and giving on the palate finishing with excellent length.
