2015 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1394860 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Red cherry, dried rose petal and cinnamon-spiced melon show on the unique and alluring nose in this bottling. The palate offers a complex blend of earth and fruit, combining sour cherry with wild thyme, red flowers and dried sage. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Pinot Noir Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is laced with sweet floral notes and bright, red-toned fruit. Delicate and medium in body, and made in a decidedly gracious, open-knit style, it is a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Open this bottle and you’ll find a lot of smoky oak, but there’s good material underneath, apparent in the undertow of fruit. Give it air and you’ll have a cool, rich pinot, its tannins a contrast of gritty and plush. Pour it with braised duck. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is the largest production cuvée of the estate and it's a year in, year out value. The 2015 (this was also reviewed last year) is a spice-filled, cherry, and forest floor-scented effort that has medium-bodied depth and richness, the focused style of the vintage, and a good finish. It's showing slightly better than this time last year and should age gracefully going forward. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Pinot Noir Estate reveals aromas of red cherry, fresh herbs and strawberry preserve, followed by a supple, medium-bodied, succulent palate with a saline, savory finish. Fermented with some whole bunches and matured in neutral barrels, this is very much in the Melville style to which readers will have become accustomed. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A savory, beefy red, dominated by sun-dried tomato and roasted cherry flavors. Cedar and spice details show on the finish. Drink now. (KM) Inner quote mark (8/2018)
