Tasting Notes

95 points Robert Parker: "Even greater – in fact, one of the best Pinot Noirs I tasted on my tour through the Central Coast – is Melville’s dark ruby/purple-colored 2008 Pinot Noir Carrie’s. Notes of forest floor interwoven with black raspberry, boysenberry, blueberry and sweet cherry, terrific texture, a dense, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish make for a Pinot Noir that is a prodigious example of the Santa Rita Hills. It should drink well for up to a decade." (08/10) This wine has a dark core of black nuances of raspberry, cherry, chocolate, coffee bean and soy that mix with lifted prettier tones of sage, chamomile tea and lavender. There is also an intoxicating spice aroma of maple, miso, filberts, sea salt and shortbread. The wine is brawnier and chalkier than the Terraces and envelopes your entire palate finishing both savory and with significant time.
