MELVILLE PINOT NOIR "BLOCK M", STA. RITA HILLS 2015
NVWE Notes: Tightly-wound, intense and packed with masculine-feminine counterpoints, this is one of Melville’s great Pinots. The aromas are a complex, classy mix of sweet red cherry, Italian Maraschino cherry, red boysenberry, red plum, dried red plum, dried red currant, wild strawberry, red rose petal, cardamom, sumac berry, red peppercorn, rosemary, coriander seed and bay leaf. It is rich in body, yet tannic grip, piquant zest and bitter-sweet cherry pit and nut husk notes create a raciness that tempers a mid-palate surge of deeply elegant fruit, and savory spice. The finish is ultra-long yet dinner-worthy and satisfying, and leaves a lasting memory of cherry, strawberry, red plum, and red currant in perfect proportion to spice notes of coriander, cardamom, allspice, rosemary, bay, hazelnut, pink peppercorn, sandalwood and star anise. Don’t be surprised if it delivers up to ten years of steady improvement. 941 6-packs made.
