Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2011
The 2009 Pinot Noir Terraces is made in a lighter more ethereal style owing to a higher percentage of stems. Crushed flowers red berries mint and herbs are some of the notes that emerge from this gorgeous focused Pinot... The 2009 Pinot Noir Terraces is made in a lighter more ethereal style owing to a higher percentage of stems. Crushed flowers red berries mint and herbs are some of the notes that emerge from this gorgeous focused Pinot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. Melville is one of the better known properties in Santa Barbara. The estate makes a wide range of wines under the direction of oenologist Greg Brewer and also sells fruit to a number of other producers. The 2009 Pinot Noirs in particular are standouts. Brewer vinified the Pinots with one-third whole clusters. The 2010 Chardonnays had only recently been bottled and needed quite a bit of air to blow off some of their reductive qualities.-AG
