Editorial Reviews for Melville Pinot Noirestate California Central Coast Region California

Fantastic on the nose with animal fur, spicy, green herbs and stems, and incredible lift and height. This is a particular expression of Pinot that certain has its followers and dramatic appeal. There’s plenty of fruit lurking under the engagingly high-toned aromatics in the black raspberry and slightly boysenberry toned register. This is smooth and rich with rich strawberry and raspberry toned fruit that has a dusting of cocoa with a real deep core of wonderfully ripe fruit that has a lively, vegetal, rhubarb edge to it. . The finish is still a bit rough with tannin and acid poking out but the fruit is pure, fresh and nicely complex. 93pts

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!

The best of the Melvilles I tasted, this wine had earth, raspberry, and mushroom aromas, with sweet top notes. Good acidity. Finish suggests that it will deepen in time, developing more earth notes as an undertow to the aromas.

Too Fruity even when decanted still does not provide a smooth finish

Nice, but not so interesting, and somewhat sweet.

I have tried this wine several times and it has never disappointed. A distinct wave of strawberry jam hits you on the nose. The wine possesses a very pleasant mouth feel with multiple flavors of dark stone fruits (plum, cherry) and soft spice. Tannins are nicely integrated on the finish. A very well made wine.

The 2011 Pinot Noir Estate Block M (formerly Carrie s) is endowed with serious energy power and structure. One of the more austere wines in the Melville range the Block M is much less expressive today than the other 2011s. Ideally the Block M is best cellared for another year or two. Expressive savory notes add complexity and distinction on the finish. Greg Brewer describes the berries in this site as tiny in 2011. The stems were ripe enough for Brewer to use 60% whole clusters. 91+ Antonio Galloni.

High-toned floral notes meld into sweet dried red cherries herbs mint and tobacco in the 2011 Pinot Noir Estate. An attractive mid-weight wine the 2011 is a bit ethereal at times but very pretty just the same. Winemaker Greg Brewer used 25% whole clusters in 2011 a little less than normal. Antonio Galloni.

Melville Pinot Noir from the Estate in Santa Rita Hills is especially bold and fragrant in the 2010 vintage. Lots of Raspberry Jam fruit character with pleasant spice notes and balanced acidity.
