Melville Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Estate 2009
Darker and richer in color than its sibling, this wine exudes a more complex and concentrated profile. Fresh fruit aromatics of black cherry, black raspberry and blood orange mix with pretty nuances of sandalwood, rose petal and gardenia. Spices reminiscent of cinnamon, salt-water taffy, rhubarb and dried herbs complete the background. The mouthfeel is dense and spherical offering a broad palate sensation while maintaining its restraint. The finish is savory with plenty of persistence and volume.
