Tightly-knit, the dense ruby/plum/purple-colored 2001 Pinot Noir Carrie's reveals sweet, concentrated, pure flavors of blue, red and black fruits, minerals, earth, and subtle wood. There is a lot in this wine, but most of it is only noticeable at the... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2001 Melville Pinot Noir Carrie's 750ml
Representing the ultimate expression of vineyard driven wines for Melville, this first time release originates from the highest, most wind swept parcel on our estate and is a block planted on clay-rich loam soil to only two Dijon clones: 114 and 115. The combination and juxtaposition of these elements forms a wine of complete elegance and definition that uniquely represents our estate. Cooperage was 40% new French oak and is the triumvirate of Marsannay, Mercurey and Sirugue. The wine was 25% whole-cluster fermented and was not pumped, fined or filtered. 15.1% alcohol.
