Melville Syrah Estate Sta. Rita Hills Verna's Vineyard 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): Looking at the three Syrahs, these are all incredible efforts that go screaming past anything else even close to this price point. The 2012 Syrah Estate Verna's offers a vibrant purple color to go with a full-bodied, seamless and layered profile. Blackberry, cassis, tobacco leaf, beef blood and hints of iron emerge from this stunner that should drink nicely for 4-5 years, if not longer. All from Melville's Verna Vineyard, 100% Syrah, 70% destemmed and aged 11 months in neutral oak, it's a no-brainer purchase and don't miss it. (Aug 2014)
