2018 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1512684 94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Starting with the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate Sta. Rita Hills, which comes from vines around the estate and saw 40% stems, it reveals a medium ruby hue as well as a great bouquet of ripe cherry and raspberry fruits intermixed with beautiful violet and floral notes. Showing the purity and elegance of the vintage, it's medium-bodied and has a silky texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. As usual, it's a screaming value. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Melville's 2018 Pinot Noir Estate is airy and lifted, with a distinctly floral and red fruit-driven personality. The 40% whole clusters add lovely nuance to an expressive, mid-weight Pinot that is full of promise. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Pale to medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate has very pretty aromas of charcuterie, rose petal, strawberry, tea leaves and earth. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and super juicy with earth and spice-tinged fruits and a long, perfumed finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
