Melville 2016 Estate Pinot Noir
Pale ruby in color, ripe and vivid aromatics of red raspberry, orange zest and rhubarb spring from the glass. On the palate, the Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir has savory notes of black tea, nori and eucalyptus mingle with fresh impressions of pomegranate, Bing cherry and plum skin. Soft tannins and fresh acidity, combined with the tenderness of the wine lead to a lengthy and cohesive finish.
