Melville Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Estate Terraces 2009

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

Winemaker's Notes - Garnet and ruby-red in color, this wine is distinctly rich and more earth driven. Aromas of red berry compote, bramble berry and dragon fruit interweave with spices of sandalwood, sage, mustard seed and molasses. Hints of minerals and green peppercorns also lurk in the background. On the palate, it is supple carrying a sublime and velvety texture. The wine finishes generously and savory leaving the mouth stained with its complexity and minerality.
