Pale garnet in color, vibrant and complex fruit aromatics of ripe pomegranate, rhubarb, tangerine zest and bright cherry spring from the glass. In the background, spicy notes of black tea dust and cinnamon weave along the palate with earthy hints of chanterelle mushrooms and wet sand. Mouthwatering and fresh on the palate, the wine displays gorgeous concentration and purity that leads to a balanced, lengthy finish.

Coming from vines around the estate, the 2017 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is based on a mix of clones and was 60% destemmed and brought up all in totally neutral oak. It's a classic Melville Pinot Noir that jumps from the glass with its spiced red and black fruits, dried flower, marine-like salinity, bay leaf, and forest floor aromas and flavors. Balanced, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, with light tannins and nicely integrated acidity, it can be drunk today or cellared for a decade.
