Tasting Notes

93-points Rober Parker: "The most impressive Pinot Noir for immediate drinking (but certainly capable of lasting a decade as well) is the 2006 Pinot Noir Melville. Sweet floral notes intermixed with black raspberry, black cherry, damp earth, and roasted herbs are followed by a wine with terrific purity, a layered, full-bodied mouthfeel, and sweet tannin (the ripest tannins of any of these Pinots). This wine should drink very well young as well as much older." (Dec 2008) 93-points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Hazy, medium red. Intensely flora bouquet of dried red berries, smoked meat, minerals and musky herbs. Strawberry and cherry flavors are complemented by floral pastille and Asian spices, with silky tannins adding support. Already showing impressive complexity, not to mention excellent finishing lift and cling. The most elegant of these pinots." (Nov/Dec 2008)
