Product Overview

The 2015 Melville Estate Pinot Noir is light garnet in color. Vivid aromatics of rhubarb, tangerine zest, fresh cranberry, and juniper are immediately apparent while intriguing notes of eucalyptus, chanterelle mushroom, plum skin, and green tea linger in the background. It's focused and precise, with velvety tannins that frame the wine's plush core as well as the lengthy and cohesive finish. 40% of the fruit sees whole cluster fermentation.

Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Appellation: Sta. Rita Hills AVA
Aging: neutral French oak

"Red cherry, dried rose petal and cinnamon-spiced melon show on the unique and alluring nose in this bottling. The palate offers a complex blend of earth and fruit, combining sour cherry with wild thyme, red flowers and dried sage." -MK, 12/1/18

91 Points - Vinous
"The 2015 Pinot Noir Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is laced with sweet floral notes and bright, red-toned fruit. Delicate and medium in body, and made in a decidedly gracious, open-knit style, it is a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years." -AG, Sep/2017

90 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2015 Pinot Noir Estate reveals aromas of red cherry, fresh herbs and strawberry preserve, followed by a supple, medium-bodied, succulent palate with a saline, savory finish. Fermented with some whole bunches and matured in neutral barrels, this is very much in the Melville style to which readers will have become accustomed." -WK, 4/27/18
