2003 Melville "Terraces" Sta Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1119156 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Full, deep red. Aromas of plum, raspberry, graphite and spices; the most complex yet of these pinots. Concentrated, sweet and penetrating, with nicely delineated berry and spiceflavors. Perhaps a bit less broad than the Carrie's but offers lovely fruit and a firm texture. Finishes with noteworthy persistence. (from five clones planted in three terraced parcels.) (ST)  (8/2005)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Discreet oak frames spicy dark pinot fruit that displays a seductive hint of the exotic that leads to rich, full, sweet and delicious medium full flavors wrapped in a lush, opulent, slightly dusty finish of impressive complexity. To be sure, this is crafted in a ripe full-blown style yet there is balance and the acidity that pokes through on the finish of so many higher-octane examples...I like the deft winemaking touch and the quality of the underlying material speaks for itself. In short, this is exceptionally well done.  (7/2005)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2003 Pinot Noir Terraces exhibits plenty of earthy, spicy, stemmy notes, a hint of underbrush, and a medium-bodied, attractively fruity, herbaceous character that is smoky, spicy, and firmly structured. Give it 1-2 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 7-8 years. (RP)  (8/2005)
