Produced from Burgundian clones #114 and #115 this is a stunning example of what can be accomplished in the cooler micro-climates of the Santa Rita Hills. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color nearly perfect balance... Produced from Burgundian clones #114 and #115 this is a stunning example of what can be accomplished in the cooler micro-climates of the Santa Rita Hills. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color nearly perfect balance tremendous texture and purity and a finish that lasts nearly 60 seconds. I know this sounds absurd but my first thought when I put my nose into the glass of the 2001 Pinot Noir Melville Vineyard was of a barrel tasting of 1990s I did in the cellars of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti in 1992. In particular the La Tache and Richebourg came to mind. This sensational wine offers a smorgasbord of profound aromas and flavors including herbs spice and red as well as black fruits. This is an outrageously complex intellectually as well as hedonistically satisfying Pinot Noir that should drink beautifully for a decade.
