Melville Estate Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

$29.95

One of the best values in Pinot Noir out there is Melville's 2013 Pinot Noir Estate and it overdelivers in just about every vintage. Firing on all cylinders on this occasion, with complex red fruits, rose petal and sous bois aromas and flavors all soaring from the glass, it's medium-bodied, ripe and expansive, with lots of Sta. Rita character, integrated acidity and a clean, nicely focused finish... it's a beauty to buy by the case and enjoy over the coming 4-5 years. eRobertParker.com

Very creamy oak, green vegetable notes, but more like fresh cut (smokey) flower stems, interesting but not my style.

Drink this a quaffing daily wine and still just love it! Not a better value produced making terroir driven family winemaker in the region. Melville is a steal in the wine world !

Beautiful balance. Fruit forward notes of cranberry and black cherry zing are complimented with umami, raspberry and stewed strawberry characteristic. A kiss of spicy oak and the 14% alc. make this a great choice for filet mignon or standard BBQ fare.

I love Melville. Terrific wines and a great value across the board. Sadly this is my last one. On the sweeter side, but not extracted and well-balanced. Lots of cherry cola, cinnamon and floral notes. I keep saying I’m going to get on their mailing list. I just need to suck it up and do it.

Bright tart and just awesome Pinot. 40% whole stem fermentation makes this Pinot a bit bigger and quite a bit better. This is a sure keeper!

Crowd pleaser. Not too complex but has enough to satisfy.

Good village-level Pinot - forward, ripe, red fruit with an appealingly tart edge, and some smoky complexity.
