A rich, extracted pinot that achieves elegance and balance. Bright red cherry nose with a hint of cardamon and five spice. Fine, integrated tannins. Finishes with a slight bit of heat. Overall, a wonderful pinot!

This expressive Pinot Noir boasts a deep ruby red core with a fuchsia rim. Lovely Pinot aromas of light strawberry, raspberry, and all-spice with a slight touch of vanilla. Nice and rich upon entry with subtle and well integrated tannins. Alex Lallos. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2007 Melville Pinot Noir Estate 750ml

94 points robert Parker `Even better is the explosive 2007 Pinot Noir Estate which possesses abundant amounts of boysenberry black raspberry forest floor roasted herb and subtle smoke characteristics. Rich textured pure and profound this deep Pinot has the acidity and tannin necessary to age easily for 5-8 years.Melvilles six Pinot Noir cuvees are all noteworthy. With the exception of the Vernas Vineyard wines which come from Los Alamos the other five are all made from different parcels of the same vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills with various density of plantings as well as clonal choices.`

A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2007 Melville Pinot Noir Estate 750ml


External Review

This wine possesses a pretty, dark red-blue hue, and opens with lifted fruit punch aromatics of black raspberry, black cherry, fig and watermelon. Spice nuances of pink peppercorns, oolong tea, iron and sesame seed follow. Contains a balance of purple flowers and hibiscus while also yielding to oceanic themes of sand and iodine. These aspects manifest cohesively on the palate bolstering its presence with significant texture and verve.

This estate, located in the Santa Rita Hills area of California, has a cool maritime climate that is perfect for growing pinot noir. Black cherry and dark plum flavors surround notes of earth and spice, while the luscious and velvety texture fills your mouth.
