Melville 2018 Block M Pinot Noir
The 2018 Melville Block M Pinot Noir from Sta. Rita Hills is a rich crimson-hued color, savory and spicy notes of shiitake mushrooms, cinnamon, star anise and wet slate emerge initially. With time, richer fruit components of strawberry gelatin, orange marmalade and blueberry notes also fill in. The palate impression is assertive, with broad shoulders and ripe tannins that give the wine tremendous depth and intensity.
