MELVILLE PINOT NOIR "SANDY'S", STA. RITA HILLS 2015
NVWE Notes: This is a wonderfully sophisticated, notably youthful Pinot with great depth and an elegantly creamy texture. The nose gradually unfolds to reveal a dense perfume of boysenberry, Italian Maraschino cherry, sour red cherry, baked red plum, blood orange, roasted beet, dried red rose, violet, mace, cardamom and pencil shavings. The wine is both generous and supple on the palate and carries the cutting zest and drying minerality to counterpoint its plush layers of fruit and spice. The mid-palate and ultra-long finishing flavors are a meld of dry red cherry, cherry pit, strawberry cobbler, blueberry-raspberry compote, beet, orange peel tea, dried rose, pie crust, sandalwood, pencil shavings, mace, cardamom, anise, leather, dried herbs and bouillon. Expect a minimum of 5 years of improvement, but don’t be afraid of it now. 767 6-packs made.
