    Melville is a perennial staff favorite here at K&L; wines our staff drink. So we were stoked when the new 2016 Estate Pinot garnered 95 points from Vinous! 2016 was the first vintage Chad Melville had turned over his Samsara wines to new owners and focused entirely on his eponymous brand with his father, Ron. Chad's love for whole cluster inclusion is perfectly executed in this wine giving beautiful texture and shape on the palate and adding spicy complexity and lift to the flavor profile. The wine is stunningly aromatic and expressive in a way only Pinot Noir can be. Crushed flowers, Asian spices, sandalwood, bright berry fruits and lick of exotic oak. Very vibrant and pure. Great length and poise on the palate, everything perfectly in place. This wine just delivers again and again. It drinks well beyond it's modest price point; I think this can hold up to most challengers from the region at any price point. With all the attention around the 95 point score this will go fast.

    Fresh red plum, raspberry, and Bing cherry lead on the nose, framed by red rose, dried maple leaf, and pink peppercorn with hints of savory herbs and wet stone. Flavorful, finely balanced, nuanced, and brimming with class, this is a delightful rendition of the distinctive Melville style. A perfect companion for duck and roasted pork preparations. This is open-knit and ready to go, though it’ll age well if so desired.
