The 2019 Estate Pinot Noir is Melville’s signature wine and for good reason. The nose provides a perfect balance of cherry, violets, and notes of herbs and pepper on the tail. The palate dances with soft, silky tannins, a sea of earthiness, and a wave of cherry that is not overpowering and far from the “cough syrup” accents that can be found in some other cool-climate Pinots. If you don’t know what wine to bring to an event, this is it: Versatile enough to bridge virtually all preferences and sure to produce some raging fans.
Winery Tasting Notes: Light ruby in color, lively and vivid aromatics of violets, just ripe black cherry, cranberry compote and briny orange waft from the glass. In the background, herbal notes of dusty rosemary and dried black tea leaf weave alongside impressions of apple blossom and a hint of nori. The mouthfeel is polished with soft, bright acidity and focused, silky tannins on the finish that add gorgeous earthy components and complexity.
