Melville Donna's Sta. Rita Hills Syrah 2015

$49.99

97 Points Parker                            A Fantastic New Syrah from Melville. Limited previous vintage 97 Points Robert Parker:  "Even better, with more depth, density and ripeness, the Syrah Donna’s offers overflowing notes of olive tapenade, salted beef, licorice, black olive, peppery herbs and cured meats, with tons of ripe currants, fresh plum and smoked black cherry fruit. Full-bodied, elegant and seamless, with fabulous purity and persistence, I wouldn't push the aging curve, but it's a killer wine that will provide tons of pleasure over the coming 7-8 years... ...Hold onto your hats, as these latest releases from Chad Melville and winemaker Greg Brewer are off-the-charts good! While both of the Chardonnays are beautiful, and play in the clean, crisp and medium-bodied spectrum, it’s the Pinot Noirs and Syrahs that are incredible across the board."

This. Wine. Is. Cool. Smells of peppered salami and raspberries. Forepalate brings irony bloody flavors that are quickly balanced by awesome juicy raspberries and ripe red fruits. A wonderfully complex story that evolves over the pallatte. Like a northern rhone with a perfect amount of fruit to balance.

Not an over the top huge Syrah. Milder weather region gives this more structure than most with soft tannins and black pepper flavors
