Product Overview

The 2015 Melville Estate Syrah is soft garnet in color, with delicate fruit notes of plum skin, Asian pear, and blueberry cobbler emerging up front. On the palate, intriguing components of pink peppercorn, cocoa powder, charred marshmallow, and black olive mingle with impressions of dried rosemary and sage along with genoa salami, peppered jerky, and honey ham glaze. The mouthfeel is tender and possesses a subtle streak of fresh acidity that frames the wine's elegant and vibrant finish. 30% of the fruit sees whole cluster fermentation.

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

92 Points - Vinous
"The 2015 Syrah Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is very pretty, but like all of these 2015s, it also needs time to be at its best. Floral and lifted, with tons of energy and tannin, the 2015 is shaping up to be a real beauty. Hints of lavender, licorice, smoke, plum and black cherry build into the super-expressive finish in this soulful midweight Syrah from Melville." -AG, Sep/2017
