The 2021 Melville Estate Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills is 100% Melville fruit made up of sixteen pinot noir clones. You'll find ripe black cherry, cranberry & orange on the nose. There is soft, bright acidity with silky tannins on the palate.
Medium ruby, the 2021 Pinot Noir Estate has alluring aromas of cranberry and orange jelly, forest floor and Angostura bitters. Medium-bodied, it floods the mouth with waves of juicy berry fruit supported by fine, chalky tannins, and it finishes long and layered. This was vinified using about 40% whole clusters. Best After 2022.
