Melville Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County Estate Verna's 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.<br/><br/>

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.
