Melville Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Terraces 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

A very full style of Pinot Noir coming from the Melville estate. Reminiscent of a bowl of dark, spiced cherries. Very voluptuous texture that will pair well with hard, aged cheeses or rack of lamb.

Medium red core with a wide pink rim. On the palate, this wine is packed with juicy red fruits, especially sweet raspberry and strawberry along with rhubarb and baking spices. White pepper, chalky earth, and the oak come through on the ample-bodied ... Cory Gowan. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2008 Melville Pinot Noir Terraces 750ml
