Melville Syrah Estate Sta. Rita Hills 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (Vinous): Opaque ruby. Blackberry, camphor and candied licorice on the pungent nose, with a hint of pipe tobacco building in the glass. Broad and sweet, with fleshy dark berry compote flavors lifted by a palate-numbing jolt of cracked pepper. Very syrah. Closes spicy, smoky and long, with repeating floral character and smooth, even tannins coming up late. (Dec 2014)
