Melville 'Estate' Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

750 ML


Product Description

A beautiful red and black color shines from the glass with fresh fruit aromatics of red currants, black raspberry, black cherry and umbeoshi. Spicy and herbal components of mocha, maple, thyme, clove and orange -black tea also emanate while nuances of ocean spray, white-oil flowers and crushed minerals thread through the background. On the palate, the wine blankets your mouth with a sensation that is plush, velvety and weighty yet remains driven and defined.


Varietal: Pinot Noir

Region: Santa Rita Hills

Region Description:

Commercial vineyards were literally non-existent in the region until the 1890's. In 2001 it gained its AVA recognition. The Santa Rita Hills run east to west inside the Santa Ynez Valley. The valley creates a natural channel allowing cool ocean air from the Pacific Ocean to flow through the valley. The micro climate created in the Santa Rita Hills area is well-suited for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
